Produced on the occasion of Michael E. Smith’s exhibition at the Staatliche Graphische Sammlungen, München, 02 September – 24 October, 2021.
Michael E. Smith makes sculptures out of cast-offs, waste and other residues of our consumer society. He assembles and manipulates this found material in an unusual way. He isolates objects, makes changes to their form and seeks out the limits of their imaginative power. His presentations are characterised by an intense yet sparse choreography of the exhibition space.
