Jean-Paul Kelly makes videos and exhibitions that pose questions about the limits of representation by examining complex associations in the production, reception and circulation of documentary material. Borrowing its title from one of William Hogarth’s moral etchings series, the forthcoming intaglio prints How cruelty disgusts the view, while pity charms the sight further engage Kelly’s interests in traditions of realism while contemporizing Hogarth’s satire. Temperance is a sketch for this folio of prints. Kelly has presented solo exhibitions at VOX Centre de l'image contemporaine (Montreal); Plug In ICA (Winnipeg); and Delfina Foundation (London, UK). His videos have screened at Canada House (London, UK); Courtisane Festival (Ghent); Film Society of Lincoln Center (New York); International Film Festival Rotterdam; New York Film Festival; and Toronto International Film Festival. He has held artist residencies at Delfina Foundation and the ISCP (New York). Kelly received the 2014 Kazuko Trust Award from the Film Society of Lincoln Center.
