ARTIST / Artist


Born in 1974 in Baltimore, USA, the work of Rosy Keyser invites us to think about the intersections between people and matter around us. Keyser usually carries objects and industrial materials she finds in rural areas of America to her works by tearing, damageing or deforming their structure. The forms thus created become compositions that carry the indelible traces of Keyser’s actions on the one hand and the obscure past each object had on the other. Each large-scale and inevitably tactile work touches different feelings and creates a bodily language of what it means to live in a material world.
