Visiting Artists & Designers
Born in 1960, Keith Piper first exhibited in 1981, as a member of the BLK Art Group, an association of black British art students. The group sought to explore issues relevant to aspects of black political struggle through contemporary art practice. Piper's work developed around an exploration of multi-media elements such as tape/slide, sound and video within an installation-based practice. He would go on to embrace the use of computers as a means of collaging images and sounds and constructing video installations. This has recently included the development of interactive installation work, CD-ROM and Web site construction. He is currently working on a major project entitled "Relocating the Remains" commissioned by InIVA (The Institute of International Visual Arts).
