Suzanne Smith – Homunculus
Suzanne Smith is an interdisciplinary fine artist based in Manchester, UK. She has an ideas-based art practice firmly rooted in the everyday: revolving around appropriation, politics and play. The accumulation, sorting and reconsidering of objects and ideas (most often with some humour) is central to her practice.
“Smith is intrigued by the point midway between appalling and delightful. It is the tension in the mundanity – the something in the nothing – that really gets her going. Smith accumulates, plays and controls – imposing a preferred order on her subject and pinning it down in its new position it long enough to take a better look. Occasionally drilling little holes to let some air in”.
