As the artists re-connect with the world after a year of shielding, their expressive and experimental piece is a reflection on the strangeness of life, and the interconnectedness of the human and non-human natural world.
Engaging with environmental themes, healing and being present, Bibo&Brian Keeley bring together imagery, sound, and voice, and incorporate metaphors, motifs, and fleeting performance, which merge and contrast with the tangible presence of the natural world
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Bibo & Brian Keeley are an artist duo based in Aberdeen. They work across various media including moving image, performance, sculpture, and sound. Their themes are informed by environmental concerns, the fragility of life, and the interconnectedness of the human and non-human natural world.
They have always collaborated at the intersection of their respective art practices, but due to their joint shielding during the Covid pandemic, on health grounds, working together has since become a central aspect of their work.
Bibo has been an artist for a number of years but only went to art school as a mature student following the life changing experience of Brian’s sudden critical illness and heart transplant in 2013. She graduated from Gray’s School of Art in 2019 with a first class BA (Hons) in Contemporary Art Practice.
Brian graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 1984 and has worked in various fields including as a commercial video editor and a teacher of Art & Design. Since his illness in 2013 he has re-focussed on being a full-time artist.
