KEEM is a collaboration between artists Kate Elliott and Emma McGarry. It was established in 2011, as an exploration into the nature of collaboration. Through methodology, ongoing discussion and debate, KEEM produces work which continuously questions subjectivity, materiality and identity.

Here I stand for Five Minutes

For the project Here I Stand for Five Minutes KEEM set up a blog, and put up posters, asking occupants of the neighbouring building (5 Fleet Place) to stand in the window at a certain time in order to pose for a five-minute group portrait.

KEEM were interested in creating a dialogue between the Factory and the surrounding external world, and in exploring the act of performance involved in portraiture, and the relationship between the public and private. The outcome is a ten-minute video portrait.

Here I Stand for Five Minutes was made during a month-long residency at the Farringdon Factory.
