Description

Kevin Schmidt is best known for addressing notions of displaced spectacle by staging elements of urban culture against the backdrop of the natural world. This compact but elegant exhibition publication, the fourth in the series from the artists’ residency, Fogo Island Arts, documents the installation and film EDM House (2013) in which Schmidt transformed the abandoned British Columbia homestead where he lived for four months into a meeting place of the urban and rural. By superimposing EDM (electronic dance music) and colored lights onto the remote location, Schmidt imbues the scenery with a chilling and exhilarating sense of displacement augmented by his disorienting camera work, and critiques our pioneering expeditions into the natural world. This slender volume includes stunning color photographs of the installation plus reflections on Schmidt’s practice by writer Jeff Derksen, a fictional narrative by novelist Michael Turner, and artist interview by Jack Stanley.
