Kim Keever baut Miniatur-Fantasy-Landschaften in einem 900-Liter-Wassertank und beleuchtet diese Dioramas mit farbigem Licht. Heraus kommen Fantasy-Landschaften, die an Ridley Scotts „Legende“ erinnern und in denen eigentlich nur noch die Einhörner fehlen.

Keever's staged scenery is characterized by a psychology of timelessness. A combination of the real and the imaginary, they document places that somehow we know, but never were. The symbolic qualities he achieves result from his understanding of the dynamics of landscape, including the manipulation of its effects and the limits of spectacle based on our assumptions of what landscape means to us. Rather than presenting a factual reality, Keever fabricates an illusion to conjure the realms of our imagination.
