    About The Work

    This important photograph by Mike Kelley documents the artist's famous site-specific public-art project Mobile Homestead, for which he created a replica of his Detroit childhood home—pictured here—and had it travel throughout the city. At once a poignant portrait of his hometown and an expression of Kelley's characteristic investigation of potential childhood trauma, the composition intriguingly juxtaposes the clean modern lines of the mobile house in the foreground with the classical columns, aging stonework, and broken windows of the abandoned buildings in the background.
