GESTALTEN.tv: Laura Keeble
Someone who does STUFF
When Laura Keeble refers to herself as "someone who does stuff," she means a hella lot of cool stuff: spectacular urban interventions, thought-provoking public installations, and cheeky sculptures.
The London-based artist recently made headlines with a mock-up of Damien Hirst's For the Love of God, bejazzling an anatomical model of a skull with 6,522 Swarovski crystals and showcasing it in a glass box, a satire of the notorious diamond-encrusted skull. Here, Keeble chats with GESTALTEN.tv on location at Andipa Gallery in London for the book launch of Gestalten's Urban Interventions.
"I am interested in creating a pause.
A brief moment in time, when a double-take allows for an internal question, a need to assess or understand.
I use symbolism and familiarities of the everyday to question what is dictated to us." (Laura Keeble)
