Michael E. Smith
artist / sculptor

Smith (1977, Detroit, USA) assembles and manipulates this found material in unusual ways. He isolates objects, makes changes to their form and seeks out the limits of their imaginative power. His presentations are characterized by an intense yet sparse choreography of the exhibition space. Accordingly, they manifest themselves as site-responsive artworks exploiting all of the museum’s infrastructure. Smith’s work seems to avoid any form of sublimation. His predilection for the absurd and for an indefinable tension ensue from a broader critical view of the ecological, economic and social challenges facing our society. This exhibition presents new, in situ created work.

    International
    Nhu Xuan Hua delved into the power of memories in a piece of work titled Tropism, Consequences of a Displaced Memory. The work gives a face to those tropisms that describe spontaneous and automatic reactions initiated by vivid emotions in response to primarily needs or past events in life. Based on archival pictures from her family, the digital intervention interprets these memories through a new angle, exploring the effect of dissipation generated by time passing and driven by the forces of an inherited memory.
