Mike Kelly, Frankenstein,  1989

Mike Kelley’s work frequently involves stuffed animals, textile banners and carpets. His work also includes drawings, objects, assemblage, performance and video. I find that Kelly's work Frankenstein really similar to mine. Frankenstein is one of Kelly's most important works. It consists of a prone torso constructed of numerous stuffed soft toys. What appears to be a head lies by it side, made from the same elements. Alongside it sits a sewing basket apparently containing the monster makers’ equipment.
