Item description for Mike Kelley - Peter Fischli, David Weiss by Ingvild Goetz Patrick Frey...
This new volume documents the work of Mike Kelley along with the collaborative work of Peter Fischli and David Weiss. Kelley's works are firmly anchored in his ironic, detached attitude towards his Irish Catholic upbringing--he makes use of the pictorial worlds of specific subcultures as well as the aesthetics of ''low culture.'' Kelley's work reflects a deep interest in the representation of childhood, as well as with the social construction of modes of sexual behavior and cultural identification. Peter Fischli and David Weiss have been making art together since 1979, humorously addressing various theoretical and philosophical explanations of the world with their subtle manipulations of everyday objects. The work of the American Kelley and the Swiss Fischli and Weiss resonate with each other in myriad ways--most importantly in their exploration of the contemporary obsession with the psychologizing of everyday life. This publication documents the work of Peter Fischli and David Weiss in the Goetz Collection during a recent exhibition, along with interviews, essays, and two texts by Kelley himself.
