Both Joan Key and Yvonne Lammerich present encounters that persist as live and resonant, accentuating viewing as incident. Key’s paintings “link abstract form and graphic notation to explore ways in which the picture can be viewed as an event”. Through installation and painting, Lammerich explores the gaps and discrepancies between the real and the apparent.
Joan Key lives and works in London. Recent group exhibitions include ‘Travelogue’, One in the Other, London (2008); ‘The Walls in Three Places’, White Nave Trust, Charlton Shopping Centre, Dover (2008).
Key also develops performances and compositions that explore parallels between the visual and sound. Recent projects include ‘Performance for Tania Chen’, performed by Tania Chen, Café Oto, London, (2009); ‘On Instructions from MD’, a composition for six performers, commissioned and performed by Apartment House for ‘Sound Waves Festival’, organised by BMIC, Brighton Pavilion Theatre (2008).
Yvonne Lammerich lives and works in Toronto. Current projects include ‘DIYS’, a proposal for a virtual museum (2009). Recent exhibitions include ‘Belief’, Diaz Contemporary, Toronto, (solo, 2008); ‘Abitation’, Trianon Gallery, Lethbridge, Alberta (collaboration with Ian Carr-Harris, 2008).
