RED brings together Painting, Installation, Video, Sculpture and Photography works made in 2011, by Margate-based collaboration, Tom Swift and Mark John Smith.
Although the works on show were conceived and produced separately, they share both a common aesthetic and conceptual approach.
RED aims to explore the interdependencies between: gallery-museum, location and place.
Tom Swift’s practice relies on a ‘make and do’ ethos. The final works shown are a reduction of this process.
Mark John Smith’s practice is concerned with the juxtaposition of the ‘elite’ with the mundane. Mark’s sculptural works include essences lifted from 1960’s Minimalism. These key historical aesthetic signifiers are then represented through the engagement and appropriation of utilitarian objects sourced from the everyday.
