Olivié Keck

‘Playing With Catastrophe’ is a reconnaissance into surviving the present tense – A rollercoaster ride through the strangeness of our time. The trashy online culture of everyday catch phrases juxtaposed against the severity of our impending climate catastrophe highlights the bipolarity of negotiating the present human experience. Mood swing melodramas and existential melt downs find a counter balance with depictions of tenderness, camaraderie and escapism. This body of work is an attempt at seeking some levity and perspective within the overwhelming pendulum of modern life.” – Olivié Keck
