The Ballet of Nothing More

Megan Keatings installation The Ballet of Nothing More uses sources from international military and propaganda imagery in order to allude to the present state of unrest within the world. Although no particular campaign or situation is specifically referred to, the paintings and papercuts aim to evoke an awkwardness or ambivalence indicative of contemporary experience. This work is not about war or the experiences of war but peoples acceptance, detachment and displacement of such issues fuelled by the media and its methods of reportage.
