It is with great pleasure that we welcome Jean-Paul Kelly to Plug In ICA for his solo-exhibition That ends that matter, a comprehensive video installation set in a courtroom. Part re-enactment combined with found-photo montage streams, and graphical animation, That ends that matter attempts to parse through and recite Kelly’s experiences observing hearings at the City of London Magistrates’ Court in Central London, UK. Given the UK’s regulations restricting all forms of visual or audio recording in courtrooms, any recollection of events throughout a hearing becomes subjective. In an effort to recount what the artist, referencing documentarian Fredrick Wiseman, calls a “fair account” of what he witnessed, there’s an embrace of abstraction, tangents, error, and the aestheticization of Kelly’s felt experiences.
