Participated in various residences around the world in New York at sva as part of a student exchange in 2003, in Paris in Cita in 2014 and in Ireland in Cushindel in 2016.

Keinan creates installations that combine mediums: sculpture, drawing, video and sound. In her works, Keinan strives to create autonomous spaces, gardens, with a unique rhythm and sense of time and light. The viewer is invited to wander through them and experience the place as singular works and as one space.

The medium of drawing is at the base of her work as a daily practice that attracts images and experiences from everyday life and the immediate environment and the basis of her research on image and observation.

 In her exhibitions, the boundaries of the mediums are blurred and blurred.

Keinan has collaborated with artists from various fields including poetry, theater and music. Formed the band the hummingbirds with musician Guy Sharaf in 2015.
