Rita McKeough’s The Lion’s Share is an immersive experience. Entering the space of her faux restaurant, viewers are initially overwhelmed by the visual array of material, the sounds of a lion eating and the clacking of the ‘cutlery’ on all the tables that comes to life when visitors approach them. McKeough describes the installation as a 3d version of a Looney Tunes restaurant in which things have gone terribly awry.
Audio, media installation, and performance artist Rita McKeough has exhibited extensively in Canada since 1977 and has presented her work internationally. McKeough received the Governor General's Award in Visual and Media Arts in 200
