About

Plot Plan No. 170518 Self-Generating Polarization Structure With Pronounced Left Hemisphere Compartmentalization This ink and watercolor, work on paper is from Patricia Smith's newly released series: "Shelter in Place" in which Smith envisions structures, shelters and cityscapes that are designed to contain conflicting desires, thoughts and impulses. Her titles and text captions point to a process of capturing ideas floating in the mental field and translating them into concrete objects. In considering the spatial foundation and corporeal properties of language itself, the works allude to various lines of philosophical and linguistic theory, such as Walter Benjamin’s evocation of space in his literary experiments with the “Denkbild”, or figure of thought. Smith’s structures effectively function as containers for “housing” phrases and ideas that have become trapped in consciousness through saturating news reports, overheard conversations or emotional touch points. By giving repetitive or troubling thoughts their own buildings, she suggests that one might arrange, contemplate and recontextualize them until they become understandable. Patricia Smith has exhibited widely in the US and internationally, including a recent solo project at 34 rue Gutenberg in Paris, and exhibitions at l’ESAD in Grenoble, France, Broadcast Gallery in Dublin, BRIC in Brooklyn and Stedelijk Museum in Aalst, Belgium. Her work has been reviewed in numerous publications, including Art in America, The New York Times, the LA Times, Daily Serving and L Magazine. She was awarded artist residencies for 2013 and 2015 at Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris and in 2014 was an artist-in-residence at Kaus Australis in Rotterdam. She was a 2014 New York Foundation of the Arts fellow in Drawing/Printmaking/Artist’s Books. She currently lives and works in Paris.
