Description

Olivié Keck’s solo exhibition ‘Drop Dead Gorgeous’ will be opening at Everard Read’s CIRCA Gallery.

“A crime of passion, in popular usage, refers to a violent crime, especially homicide, in which the perpetrator commits the act against someone because of a sudden strong impulse such as rage or jealousy.” — Urban Dictionary

This body of work is an investigation into the fetishization of crimes of passion by the media and a portrayal of how these particular criminal cases have become ‘en vogue’ in popular culture,
often capturing the public’s eye through high-profile news stories and entertainment broadcasting.

In general, domestic crimes that stem from romantic disputes seem to get more attention and coverage in the news than other types of criminal investigation.
