Verity-Jane Keefe is a visual artist working predominantly in the public realm to explore the complex relationship between people and place. She is interested in the role and potential of the artist within urban regeneration, working with moving image, text, object and installation to explore possible taxonomies of everyday life. She has a long-term relationship with Barking and Dagenham, making work for, about and with the borough since 2006 as well as across outer London and internationally. Whilst at Cove Park, Verity will be working in collaboration with Paul Bailey, an Irish graphic designer, researcher and educator who is currently based in London.
This residency is funded via the Arts Council England 2019 -20 ‘Grants for The Arts’ fund, as part of Verity’s Living Together commission.
