Publication Date 2004
Description Tina Keane first came to prominence in the late 1970s with her performance work and involvement in setting up London feminist film collective Circles. Since then she has become an internationally acclaimed artist working in a wide variety of media, including video, neon sculpture and installation. "Electronic Shadows is the first study of her work, bringing together her diverse career and oeuvre in the context of a wider history of the visual arts. During the 1980s and 90s Tina Keane developed her video work, incorporating a strong decorative aesthetic with personal narratives, building on her experimental film, video and performance from the 1970s and early 80s. "Electronic Shadows explores the diversity of Keane's practice, considering her relationship to and influence on contemporary video art, and situating her films within a broader context of artist's film from the late 70s onwards. With extensive illustrations this volume documents Keane's work and her wide influence on contemporary artists such as Tracey Emin, Tim Noble and Sue Webster.
