JEAN-PAUL KELLY | A SENSATION BEST DESCRIBED BY ANOTHER

Information on the activity

May 15, 2019 to July 14, 2019

From May 15th till July 14th, 2019.

The installation “That ends that matter” (2016-2019) was first presented at the Delfina Foundation in London, UK. Its original production was made possible through funding support from the Ontario Arts Council, an agency of the Government of Ontario, with additional research support from the Film Society of Lincoln Center’s Kuzuko Trust Award and Delfina Foundation’s family of individual supporters. The new work “Cite (Spectrum Colours Arranged by Chance)” (2019) was produced with the support of the City of Toronto through the Toronto Arts Council.

Jean-Paul Kelly’s work questions the limits of representation by examining complex associations in the production, reception, and circulation of documentary material, using found images and films often sourced from online archives. “A sensation best described by another” is his first solo exhibition in Montreal. It includes the 3-channel video installation “That ends that matter” (2016-2019) and the new photo-based sculpture “Cite (Spectrum Colours Arranged by Chance)” (2019), respectively referencing Jean Genet’s film “Un chant d’amour” (1950) and the work of artist Ellsworth Kelly.

Opening on Wednesday, May 15th at 5:00 p.m. and talk with the artist at 5:30 p.m.
