Rijksakademie OPEN 2016, Amsterdam

‘Predator Versace Bleached’ was an installation and performance which knotted together three disparate themes; coral bleaching, the murder of fashion designer Gianni Versace, and a critique of the 1987 sci-fi action horror movie Predator. Through the form of a fashion show dress rehearsal, Keogh displayed a series of costumes to an argumentative semi-figurative sculpture. The costumes were explained to the sculpture through anecdotes about the origin myth of coral, the mechanics of a hollow point bullet and how Predator is a thinly veiled remake of the myth of Medusa.
