Running across the basement galleries of the CCA, artist Sam Keogh presents a performance, and installation of ceramic sculptures and six large-scale collaged paintings on paper, that draw on pre-modern motifs and myths of abundance. The mediaeval myth of Cockaigne; a land of plenty in which food is abundant (it rains cheese), work abolished, and sexuality liberated features in both verse and visual traditions; most powerfully for Keogh in Bruegel the Elder’s painting The Land of Cockaigne (1567).
