Eva Meyer-Keller (DE)
Eva Meyer-Keller lives and works in Berlin. She works at the interface of performance and visual art. Before graduating from the School for New Dance Development (SNDO) in Amsterdam she studied photography and visual art in Berlin (HdK) and London (Central St. Martins and Kings College). Her artwork is distinctive due to its meticulous attention to detail. Eva often uses everyday objects from her immediate surroundings, things that she finds at home, in the supermarket or in the tool shed. This inevitably lends the work an obsessive, domestic aesthetic.
Eva Meyer-Keller (DE): Living Matters
Living Matters is the working title of the second part of a trilogy of works developed in conversation with natural scientists. While the starting point of Some Significance (the first and previous part) was the smallest unit in physics and looked into scientific models which depict things that we are unable to see with our naked eye, this new project turns to the smallest unit in biology, the cell, and attends to both the question of how matter becomes alive, as well as to the matters that make scientific models, methodologies, standards, and the conventions and apparatuses for visualizing (different kinds of) knowledge. More specifically, one of our main objects/subjects of study will be HeLa, an immortal cell line most widely used for scientific research, and the story of the woman it was sourced from without her consent.
