Catherine Telford Keogh’s work explores systems of containment, circulation and consumption that structure the bonds between language, biomatter, commodity objects, and waste. Each sculpture functions as a form of containment housing heterogenous materials that are defamiliarized through deconstruction and combination. She foregrounds material agency and the half-life of images to investigate the politics of containing and displaying objects as they continuously break down and regenerate in a cross between a trash pile and an infinite dreamscape. Telford Keogh holds an MFA from the Yale School of Art and an MAR in Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies from Yale University. She has exhibited internationally at Bronx Museum (New York), Galerie Antoine Ertaskiran (Montreal), Interstate (New York), Helena Anrather (New York), and Roberta Palen (Toronto). Telford Keogh is a current artist-in-residence at the Pelling Laboratory for Augmented Biology at the University of Ottawa.
