After studying Art History, Photography and Graphic Design in Munich in the 1990s, Evi Keller moved to Paris to work as a photographer. She created her studio in 2000, and since then she has dedicated herself exclusively to her art, collaborating regularly with dancers and contemporary musicians.
Besides her photographs and videos, her current creations which she calls Matière-Lumière, are the culmination of a new cycle.
Matière-Lumière are multiple and changing works, musical scores interpreted by light like sails floating outside their frames – they free themselves from space and the environment in which they were created.
Evi Keller‘s work. The same year, the Maison Européenne de la Photographie presented the photography and audio-visual work Matière-Lumière (Towards the Light – silent transformations), which is now part of the permanent art-video collection of the institution. Matière-Lumière has been shown at the Centrale for Contemporary Art in Brussels and at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs (March-June 2016), where a lecture was held on the works of Jean Dubuffet and Evi Keller. She has since been part of several group exhibitions coordinated by the gallery ; on proposal of the gallery, the philosopher and curator of the exhibition, Joke Hermsen chose two of Evi Keller’s major works for the exhibition “Kairos Castle” that was presented at the Gassbeek Castle in Belgium (April-June 2017). Two works are also presented on the occasion of the exhibition “Passion de l’Art – Galerie Jeanne Bucher Jaeger depuis 1925”, first retrospective devoted to the galerie, at Musée Granet in Aix-en-Provence (France).
