JUNK | CHRIS KELLY
JUNE 1, 2018 - JUNE 30, 2018
Chris Kelly creates works that call for the viewer to be as intellectually invested in the experience as he was while creating his pieces. Inspired by Joseph Kosuth’s “One and Three Chairs” he asked “Which is the real chair?” and sought to look at words differently. Working with found objects allowed him to place elements in new and unfamiliar ways and explore the way words and definitions are read by a variety of different people. His ultimate goal is to display multiple definitions in harmony in order to encourage viewers to think outside their preconceived boxes and look at the world in a different way.
