Varnishing in the framework of Par/ICI: Tuesday 17th January at 7pm

Proposed by Christian Rizzo, the SMITH exhibition presents a selection of photographs extracted from the Löyly (2007-2012), Spectrographies (2014) and TRAUM (2016) series. They explore the plasticity of identity and the difficulty of relation to self and others.

Through the travel log of his trips from the Opal Coast to Finland, his portrait gallery and cinematograms, the visual artist explores the poetry of metamorphosis. Through the ghostlike, fantasmatagorical and post-traumatic transformation figures, SMITH gives life to subjectification processes which influence the alteration or the wound of identity in a meaningless or negative way, until disappearing altogether. His work is an invitation to dive into an obscure and blurred atmosphere, within a studded and aura-filled image, conducive to contemplation or reverie.

LÖYLY (2007-2012)

Film and pictures: SMITH

In partnership with la galerie les Filles du Calvaire

This project is an exploration of the transient, transit, transition...the in-between, the impossible-to-assign and unspecified space which is open to all opportunities. In the cold, frosty mist, in darkness and steam, in the rain and snow, the artist feels most at home and his own body takes position. The colour scheme — cold blue, greyish blue, evanescent white, on the edge of extinction — represents the lands of the North. The bodies seem reserved, declining, indented, often reclining, with alabaster complexions and swooning eyes. In the Löyly series, we can see a dark rock outlined against a sky which blends into the stone; the image undeniably evokes romantic painting, with double clouds threatening like a tornado, frost and intensely cold landscapes. And numerous young people photographed from behind, always shown in positions of dreaming or reclining; being elsewhere.

SPECTROGRAPHIES (2014-2015)

Exhibition — Photos pulled on aluminum and video Ghost Dance (8 minutes)

ProjectionSpectrographies (59 minutes) | Tuesday 17th January 2017 at 7pm — The Bagouet studio

Thermogrammes, film and movie: SMITH

Music: Victoria Lukas

This project explores new technology (text messages, Skype, electronic chips, etc.) as a means to cure absence, to extend the presence of someone or to give greater consistency to memories. SMITH’s thermograms (photographs taken with a thermal camera which captures human heat), are then filled with ghostly silhouettes, survivors resisting death and missing persons warding off oblivion. How can we survive the loss of the Other? Can the “remains” of loved ones make up for their absence?  Does fantasy have a body? In Spectrographies, SMITH summons the creative motivation of loss and the visual strength of desire while seeking to catch the absent, unreachable figure.
— Florian Gaité

TRAUM (2015-2016)

Exhibition — Pictures

Projection TRAUM (25 minutes) | Wednesday 25th January 2017 at 7pm — The Bagouet studio  

Film and pictures: SMITH

Production: Spectre Productions, with la galerie les Filles du Calvaire, AM Art Films, Accès), Cultures Électroniques, Olympus France, Dicréam, CNAP, Centre Pompidou

Yevgeni is a young technician working in a space centre as spaceship launch operator. He dreams of going to space but as he suffers from narcolepsy he has to stay on the ground. During the launch of the Soyouz shuttle carrying good friend Vlad, Yevgeni suddenly falls asleep and loses contact with Vlad, the cosmonaut in orbit, resulting in the explosion of the shuttle in space. Haunted by the accident, Yevgéni becomes prisoner of a living nightmare that he cannot escape from. As Yevgéni disembodies and dissolves into the cosmos, Jénia, a twin-screen, appears. She embodies herself until she becomes a new form of the latter, an embodiment of trauma survival. This is an exploration of the body and its mutations, deconstruction, alterations. TRAUM describes a “stalk” of the characters through unconsciousness, seeking to give a shape, a body to the transformation, to the enigma that is post-traumatic second-birth.
