We hope you join us for a free guided tour of our current exhibition, That ends that matter by Jean-Paul Kelly on Saturday, March 9 at 3pm. The tour will be led by Plug In Institute of Contemporary Art’s Executive Director, Jenifer Papararo, who will take visitors through the exhibition with a discussion of this intensely researched and controversial exhibition. The exhibition is minimal in its appearance but dense in content and ambitious in its technical operation. Papararo will discuss a progression of Kelly’s thought in relation to the five main elements in the exhibition and through Kelly’s methodology to destabilize the conventions of truth-telling within documentary frameworks.
We are also pleased to announce that Jean-Paul Kelly’s solo-exhibition, That ends that matter, will be extended until March 31st, 2019, in an effort to increase accessibility for visitors.
INFORMATION ABOUT “THAT ENDS THAT MATTER”:
It is with great pleasure that we welcome Jean-Paul Kelly to Plug In ICA for his solo-exhibition, That ends that matter, a comprehensive video installation set in a courtroom. Part re-enactment combined with found-photo montage streams and graphical animation, That ends that matter attempts to parse through and recite Kelly’s experiences observing hearings at the City of London Magistrates’ Court in Central London, UK. Given the UK’s regulations restricting all forms of visual or audio recording in courtrooms, any recollection of events throughout a hearing becomes subjective. In an effort to recount what the artist, referencing documentarian Fredrick Wiseman, calls a “fair account” of what he witnessed, there’s an embrace of abstraction, tangents, error, and the aestheticization of Kelly’s felt experiences.
