 “Space, like time, engenders forgetfulness; but it does so by setting us bodily free from our surroundings and giving us back our primitive, unattached state …”  – The Magic Mountain by Thomas Mann  During her residency,  Keegan Luttrell  investigates the affects of institutionalization and the nature of time in an isolated state. Drawing inspiration from where she currently lives, a small mountain town in Switzerland that famously housed patients in Sanatoriums throughout the early 1900s, her research revolves around one’s relationship to time when removed from the outside world. Through creating various lenses into these imagined worlds, a shift of what is real and what is perceived is depicted through portals and slivers of built and simulated environments. Through video, sculpture and performance, Luttrell has used her art practice and studio space to channel the behaviors of the isolated and the means and ways one builds a relationship to the awareness of time.
