Nick Smith

Job Title: 





I am an artist based between London and Liverpool, I explore class as a site of tension or misunderstanding, I articulate complex social contradictions that are largely ignored or deemed too difficult to talk about. I use my work to reflect on personal experiences from my upbringing in Merseyside between 1982-2003. I work predominantly from a digital archive consisting of photographic, sound and video ‘banks’ that are either shot, recorded or collected. The exploration of division as something that can bring us together is embedded within my practice. This creates a space for an alternative narrative to arise - allowing the viewer to circumnavigate black and white thought patterns pushed on us by social media and increased segregation. Finished works enable deep and impactful engagement with contemporary political and historical events in short, sharp doses across physical and digital displays.
