“The Simuacular Theatre of the Contempuacular!”
Keith Kavanagh’s work is primarily concerned with the expectations of artworks. He attempts to use the expectations of the viewer as well as the artist to comment on the nature of engagement with artworks, the art object, audience responsibility and the execution of ideas. Recurring mediums used in Contemporary art such as performance, Installation and Audio are employed ambiguously. Changing from the understated, the metaphorical and the far-fetched to the animated, the theatrical and the tacky. Keith Kavanagh also enjoys using words such as postulate, narrative, mode, heterotopia, cognitive and of course allegorical.
