Competition: US & Canada
Greg Smith makes videos and objects. The videos pivot around mechanisms and hand-made devices, equal parts precise engineering and haphazard artifice. They are built, used, dismantled, re-purposed, or forgotten in front of the camera. The objects make their own arguments for themselves, but their overriding purpose and that of Smith’s project is to better understand the nature of video: what it can (and can’t) do, how it lives in a gallery setting, and how it mediates performance.
Greg Smith lives and works in Brooklyn and shows with Susan Inglett Gallery in New York City.
