Veins is a new interactive installation by artist Rita McKeough, that follows and builds on issues explored in her most recent works, Wilderment, Alternator, The Lion’s Share and H. This work is motivated by McKeough’s sense of unease as it relates specifically to the ongoing planning and construction of the oil and gas pipelines being built across a fragile and vulnerable landscape. This work will look broadly at the sheer complications, multiplications and furtherance of the risks we take. The questioning of these processes will perhaps have an opening, and another layer of understanding of the vulnerability and complexities of the natural landscape. Rita McKeough wishes to express her thanks to the Alberta Foundation for the Arts and the Rauschenberg Foundation for their additional support of this project.
