“Keel often works in series, as he engages with certain themes over a period of many years. His drawings and paintings capture remembered images in a way that also conveys a sense of the transience of memory. As memories made visual, as the fleeting impulses of the past made concrete, these drawings activate an awareness of time. They are records of specific experiences that open onto the general horizon of a collective past. They are a protest against forgetting. (...) The act of drawing in the practice of Philipp Keel is not confined to the studio alone but is often an effect of his displacements, into the city, into the landscape, into other spaces, into other states of mind.” – Hans Ulrich Obrist

A choice of Philipp Keel's works on paper – drawings, watercolors and silkscreen prints – is being shown for the first time in Switzerland in the exhibition State of Mind at Villa Flor in S-chanf, from August 2 to December 20, 2014. The book State of Mind is published by Nieves and produced by Victor Hotz.
