I Want My Mike Kelley
by Ben Davis
"Day Is Done," Nov. 11-Dec. 17, 2005, at Gagosian Gallery, 555 West 24th Street, New York, N.Y. 10011
Mike Kelley’s new show at Gagosian’s gargantuan Chelsea gallery jackhammers the viewer with noise, music, shrieking voices, motion and color. The space is packed with a maze of different installations, from freewheeling disco lights and living rooms with furniture that swivels wildly as if possessed, to giant chess pieces and a 15-foot-long missile designated as the "Gospel Rocket."
