Catherine Telford Keogh

Greater Toronto Art 2024

Catherine Telford Keogh (b. Toronto, Ontario) is an interdisciplinary artist based in Brooklyn. She employs found and formed images and materials to compose sculptures and installations through a series of accumulations. Drawing from field research, biology, earth science, feminist theory, and science fiction, she employs open-ended processes that involve decomposition, scent, chemicals, and metabolism to transform commodity objects that circulate through deferred possibility. Her work is concerned with fantasies and promises embedded in objects that break down through material relations and ecological processes. Telford Keogh received a Master of Fine Arts in Sculpture and a Master of Arts in Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies from Yale University. Selected group exhibitions include: Galeria Fidelidade Arte (Lisbon), Canadian Cultural Centre (Paris), Public Gallery (London), Someday Gallery (New York), Bronx Museum (New York), and Thkio Ppalies (Cyprus). She has had recent solo exhibitions at Helena Anrather (New York) and Erin Stump Projects (Toronto). 

For GTA24, Telford Keogh was commissioned to create a major new site-specific sculptural installation that builds upon her ongoing research into deep time and embodied histories. This new work mines the relationship between environmental histories and capitalist industry.
