SAM SMITH

The Horizontal Window

The Telfer Gallery
13 Ross Street
Glasgow
G1 5AR

Exhibition

Working across video, sculpture, performance and installation, Smith’s work draws heavily upon the language of cinema. He uses techniques such as framing, montage and composition to explore the mediation of form through the camera lens.

In both his videos and performances he makes subtle software interventions drawing the viewer’s attention to a shift in cinematic vocabulary, adapting historic modes of moving image to incorporate a move away from an anthropocentric vision.

For Glasgow International, he is presenting a large-scale architectural installation that will act as a site for a new video work and performance. The Horizontal Window is a multi-faceted project that explores the window as a framing device in Modernist architecture and how it can be related to the language of the cinematic frame.
