Looking at the play between memory and forgetfulness, 'Mike Kelley: Fortress of Solitude' brings together a range of key works from across the artist’s career. Whether using found stuffed animals as emotional effigies of long lost traumatic memories, or evoking the psychic existential homelessness of Superman in the form of his Kandor series, Mike Kelley explores the dark underbelly of post-war American culture. This publication accompanies the exhibition that took place at the Museum of Cycladic Art in Athens, Greece.
