Memento Aldi is an installation of Danny Kelly’s recent painting at deAppendix, a cultural space co-located with a suburban GP surgery in Blackrock, Co. Dublin. The exhibition will run from 23 October to 7 December 2018.
Danny Kelly’s work elaborates a subjective sphere of heterogeneous features comprising tropes of painting culture and items of biographical significance. A protean topography traverses the work’s pictorial content, objective environmental and material properties, and interpreted public and personal cultures – intimations of chart music and domestic miscellanea. Dynamics of disintegration and consolidation alternate, suggesting an accidental crucible breeding ephemeral hybrids. A visceral, crudely drawn practice emerges – playing with cohesiveness, personal identity and public visuality – and is embraced as a pidgin chart music.
