Keef Winter works with sculpture, installation, noise-making and performance. Winter produces abstract apparatus that reference urban dissonance and reflect on cultish practices. His work seeks to embody, in object and sound, a state of transformation that is birthed from symbolic and physical enactments of rupture. In the destruction of a fence or hoarding, a petrol bomb to a peace wall, a brick to a riot shield, a smashed shop window in a protest, the surfaces that are the first to be struck are the elements that form Winter’s material language.
