Amelie Mckee

Amélie Mckee is a French & British artist, her work investigates the way scientific positivism is interlaced with technological mass manufacturing and con- sumerism. She explores the aesthetics of technological language using cables, switches, buttons, and components found in commonplace technologies. These elements, associated with functionality disrupt a contemplative experience and trigger an inquisitive approach to the work. She is intrigued by the sensationalist glorification of high-tech and develops the deceptive qualties and underwhelming aspects of technologies to generate new meanings.

Her recent body of work focuses on creating both fictional and functional antennas, examining the ambivalence of telecommunication used in the trans- mision of everyday information as well as in modern wardare. Antennas are approached as novel vitalist forms, populating strategic geostratospheric spaces.
Besides her use of sculpture and video, she is the co-founder of Plicnik Collective, an experimental curatorial platform, and runs the programme at Gen- eration & Display gallery. Mckee holds an MA from the Royal College of Art in Contemporary Art Practice (2021) and a BA in Fine Art from Chelsea College of Art (2018).
