Mike Kelley & Michael Smith
A Voyage of Growth and Discovery
 
Introduced by Emi Fontana & Michael Smith
 
Mike Kelley and Michael Smith’s video follows the bizarre journey of Baby Ikki over several days at Burning Man, the festival of “radical self-expression” held in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada. Baby Ikki – pre-lingual and of ambiguous age – is a character that artist Michael Smith has been performing for over thirty years. Mike Kelley and Michael Smith “A Voyage of Growth and Discovery”
