Situated at 56 Church Street, SMITH studio specialises in new works by a broad range of established and emerging artists and, in keeping with its unassuming name, aims to make art ever-more accessible to art lovers and collectors, simultaneously demystifying certain aspects of an often complex art world.
The studio will also work closely with art buyers to establish carefully curated private collections that will ultimately yield not only aesthetic benefit but ultimately financial reward too.
SMITH invites you to a walkabout on Thursday the 7th of March at 17h00. This will be Claire Johnson's final walk-through of her latest solo exhibition Remnant.
How have you processed the notion of the subjectivity of memory through your work?
Christian Boltanski’s ideas of “small memories” – trivial, little things that are lost through generations, but are central to the lived experience – were a big influence on me. I’m fascinated by the seemingly incidental and often inexplicable ways objects gain significance, often linking lasting and important memories with random events and objects in ways we can’t control. In the same breath, there is the shared experience of memory – not knowing how it works, but knowing vividly how it feels, which acts as a port of entry for viewers.
Make sure to arrive a few minutes earlier as the walkabout will commence at 17:00. We look forward to seeing you there.
