Mike Kelley "Videos"
This video screening will present works that have rarely been shown in Japan. "The Banana Man" (1983), his only solo video work, "Kappa" (1986), made in collaboration with Bruce and Norman Yonemoto, and "Superman Recites Selections from 'The Bell Jar' and Other Works by Sylvia Plath" (1999) will be shown in large projection.
Also on view will be videos from his "Extracurricular Activity Projective Reconstruction" series, "Day is Done" (#2-32) and "Judson Church Horse Dance and The Offer" (#33). Based on high school yearbook photographs that Kelley found and for which he reconstructed scenarios, the "Day is Done" videos were originally presented as part of large-scale video and sculptural installations: 32 of such videos will be shown. "A Voyage of Growth and Discovery" with Michael Smith and "10:30PM, August 14, 2008", a recording of a performance with Paul McCarthy and Masaya Nakahara will be on view as well.
