More about the exhibition: Examining aspects of reciprocal care, Keeling seeks to understand how people form connections with each other and with nature, and how they capture and cherish memories and moments in time. In thinking through these concepts, the artist’s practice has shifted to include not only found images but also plants and flowers that she has grown herself or foraged from neighbours’ garden clippings. Hosted online within a virtual space evocative of a naturalistic outdoor landscape, The Advantages of Tender Loving Care features the first artworks in Keeling’s new series of moving images and collages that merge sourced imagery with scanned floral elements.
