Michael E. Smith
Michael E. Smith’s sculptures, films, and spatial interventions resound with the decay and vulnerability of nature and civilization. They seem like the remains of a ruinous civilization that is destroying itself at an ever-faster rate.
Found objects like bones, dead animals, plants, or plastic containers are crushed, tried, bent, or covered in resin or paint.
They wind up under the ceiling, in corners, on the floor or hovering close above it.
