Ella Jo Skinner is a Welsh experimental multidisciplinary artist and writer. Her work ranges from painting, sound design, poetry to video. Through her work she seeks to express the painful, dehumanising effects of modern politics and social discourse on the body and psyche. She is mainly inspired by anti – psychiatry and post structuralism and uses these theories in an attempt to find new modes of communication and expression outside of societal norms. She uses violence and provocative imagery to provoke her audience into deeper thought and reflection. Through collaborations with the collective SCUM she works alongside other artists, writers and philosophers to explore notions of social collectivity, political critique and accessibility in art, performance and the internet.
