Touching, smart and witty, Jean-Paul Kelly’s idiosyncratic vision explores narrative structure as a mediation of everyday anxieties and anticipated grief. His works are developed using a hybrid aesthetic language shaped by home movies, cinema, art history, cartoons, digital compositing and performance. And fastened to a dying animal continues Kelly’s process of using home-video documents featuring the artist, his parents and their pets, as reference material for the production of a new video installation and digital animation, accompanied by a body of illustrated and photographic works.
