About

Jeff Keen was a pioneer of experimental film, using multi-screen projections, collages, animations and performances to transform cinema into an intense, kaleidoscopic experience. A veteran of the Second World War, Jeff Keen’s work powerfully evokes the violence, colour, speed and noise of the 20th century, incorporating raucous collages of comics, drawings, B-movie posters, plastic toys, burning props and extravagant costumes. His installation at the Tanks, Gazapocalypse - Return to the Golden Age, showcases his radical development of multiple screen projection, cut-up soundtracks and unruly live action, and features a special performance by some of Keen’s collaborators, including his daughter Stella Starr.
