Sam Smith is a video installation and performance artist born in Sydney, Australia currently living and working in London, UK. By treating built forms as active things, Smith gives resonance to the histories within their material structures. The locations of past films and 20th century Modernist residences become vibrant entities, capable of reorganising matter, facilitating life and playing a crucial part in their own narrative.
Smith’s solo projects include 'E.1027', a live video performance at Whitechapel Gallery, London; 'The Horizontal Window' at The Telfer Gallery as part of Glasgow International 2016; 'Slow Form' at Centro de Artes Visuais, Coimbra, Portugal; and video performances at the Australian Centre for Moving Image, Melbourne; KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin; and the Institute of Contemporary Arts, London for the Artists' Film Biennial. He has exhibited in group shows at venues including Gallery of Contemporary Art, E-WERK, Freiburg; De Appel Arts Centre, Amsterdam; Sandefjord and Larvik Kunstforening, Norway; Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney; The Royal Standard, Liverpool; Sinne, Helsinki; Jupiter Woods, London; and insitu, Berlin. A new book, ‘Here the Sun does not enter’, designed and edited by Smith with artist Andrea Zucchini was released by Assembly Point in March 2017. The monograph ‘Sam Smith: Frames of Reference’, featuring texts from Jan Verwoert and Post Brothers, was published by Broken Dimanche Press and Künstlerhaus Bethanien in 2014.
