Olivié Keck (b.1989, Cape Town) received a BAFA from Michaelis School of Fine Art, University of Cape Town in 2011. She currently lives and works in Cape Town. According to Keck " I relish loud colours, juxtaposing ideas, jumbled associations and subverting expectations. There’s a ‘pleasure spiked with pain’ feeling about the work I make. This is a sensation I feel captures my experience of the world. Humans are never fully in one attitude; and I’d like to think my work echoes both the severity and the humour in this sentiment." Keck’s solo exhibitions included; ‘False Priest’ (2014) at Commune1, ‘Selfie Fulfilling Prophecy’ (2016) at David Krut Projects, ‘Drop Dead Gorgeous’ (2019) at CIRCA/Everard Read JHB and her most recent solo ‘In Bloom’ (2020) at 131A Gallery. Keck has attended two international art residences: The Kala Art Institute (2016 Berkeley/USA) and The Frans Masereel Centrum (2017 Antwerp/Belgium). She has exhibited internationally with No Man's Art Gallery in Tehran and The Kala Art Institute in Berkeley/USA. Her work has been featured numerous times at art fairs such as CTAF, JAF and Turbine Art Fair.
