Olivié Keck (b.1989, Cape Town) received a BA(FA) from Michaelis School of Fine Art, University of Cape Town in 2011 and has since shown in numerous group exhibitions in Cape Town including ‘Loadshedding’ (2015) at Commune.1, ‘SA Taxi Award Foundation Exhibition‘(2015) at Lizamore & Associates Gallery and ‘Aeipathy’ (2016) at Equus Gallery. She had her first solo show ‘False Priest’ in 2014, and in February 2016 she received an International Art Residency (AIR) at the Kala Art Institute, Berkeley.

Working with a variety of techniques and forms such as fabric, printmaking, drawing, embroidery and ceramics, and with a narrative and process driven approach, Keck ventures to decipher the transient natural world and her place within it. The fragile materiality of her work closely mirrors her working concepts and the emotional play of creation and story-telling.
