Deborah Kelly – For creation

VIDEOKOPPI | 1.7.-18.7.2023


For Creation contemplates the glittering webs enveloping matter and sentience. Combining ardent queerness, elegy and homage, For Creation is an animated paper collage constructed from the ruins of obsolete books. Collagists studied SJ Norman’s glorious Liturgy of the Saprophyte, the new sacred literature at the heart of the CREATION religion, and their resulting artworks form figure and field. Musical collaborators and queer dancefloor legends Stereogamous composed the anthemic soundtrack, featuring the voices of SJ Norman and emerging popstar Lupa J.

artists bio

Deborah Kelly’s practice encompasses collage, installation, event and performance. Her projects are often collaborative and concerned with lineages of representation, politics and history in public exchange. Beware of the God (2005), commissioned by the MCA, appeared across Sydney as postcards, videos and projections onto clouds. She has made political billboards, a dancing memorial, black armbands, countless stickers and free posters. No Human Being Is Illegal (2014-19), for the Biennale of Sydney, unfolded through open collage workshops and is now in the collection of the Wellcome Trust, London. She is currently founding a queer science fiction climate change religion: CREATION.
