Marilee Keys

St. Louis artist Marilee Keys and 1708 Exhibition Liason
Daniel Calder at the preview for her installation Outside/In.

Outside In is a site specific installation which utilizes Keys junk mail collected over the past 9 months with pine needles and leaves. Utilizing a contemporary version of the old technique of paper quilling, Keys has constructed an environment with works off the walls, floor and and ceiling to create "a new topography, with paper, shadows, space and volume."

1708 as a "floating garden" is kinetic, poetic and relevant and a lovely zen counter to the busy flux of a new season on the Broad St Corridor.
