In conjunction with the retrospective exhibition on view at MoMA PS1, MoMA presents Mike Kelley’s Extracurricular Activity Projective Reconstruction #1 (A Domestic Scene), a half-hour drama inspired by a photograph of a school play found in a high school yearbook.
Written and directed by Kelley in 2000, this one-act melodrama explores the psychologically fraught relationship between two men as it unfolds in a room centered around a gas stove. This video was the inaugural installment of Kelley’s monumental 36-part project, a series of performance works intended to fill in the blanks left by forgotten or repressed memories, with narratives of standardized abuse.http://www.moma.org/visit/calendar/exhibitions/1431
Presented here alongside photographs documenting the set and actors, EAPR #1 is a touchstone in Kelley’s profound experiment with video, and his career-long investigation of imaginary or remembered architectural forms.
