Mixtape #21: “Fat Mama Kick” – Ian Skedd


Mixtape #21 is by Vancouver based multidisciplinary artist, Ian Skedd, who was interviewed by Josh Olson in the current issue of 01 Magazine. Ian works with installation, intervention, performance, sound and video. After getting a Cecil Lewis Sculpture scholarship, Ian moved to London to finish his MFA at Chelsea College of Art and Design. He is currently working on a project that re-visits, re-analyses and re-evaluates art activism of the sixties, seventies and eighties and its relationship to art markets and institutions, resulting in a series of works that re-stage and document familiar forms of protest. In 2011, he will be taking the Or Gallery in Vancouver, off the electrical grid, using a solar power system, in an exhibition titled (Off the Grid) Solar Power Project.
