Architecture’s associations with descriptive language (coffers, ogees, bosses) are scrambled like words in a dream. Kelly’s The corpse in the breakfast food (its title deriving from a film mentioned in one of F Scott Fitzgerald’s letters to his daughter) evokes an imagined space through curves of black paper painted in arabesques and checkerboard. This is an interior architecture, the kind in the imagination when a place is described in a book or a letter: maps of an imagining mind.
