Plant Life: Photography, Installation and Video works by Tiffany Smith


AWP_2.jpg

Space Create is pleased to present the vibrant work of Tiffany Smith.  Utilizing photography, installation and video Plant Life explores migrations of people and transplanted lives while creating a visual record of experience. As part of her exhibit Smith constructs an interactive photo booth encouraging viewers to photograph themselves within the lush settings she creates.

Tiffany Smith is a visual artist from the Caribbean diaspora who uses photography, video, design, and installation to create conceptually based work focused on identity, cultural ambiguity, and representation; particularly within minority communities. Her work examines individual narratives pulled from an array of multi-cultural influences, derived from her upbringing between Miami, Florida, Nassau, Bahamas, and Jamaica, and molded by her current home of Brooklyn, NY. Smith’s practice searches for new perspectives on dominant historical narratives and aims to provide insight into issues surrounding communities and how they are formed, defined, and identified.
