This comprehensive new monograph on the influential British artist-filmmaker—renown for his playful and formally ingenious subversion of the everyday world—contains essays by Ian Christie, Martin Herbert, Kathrin Meyer, and Ethan de Seife.

Herbert’s text provides an incisive overview of Smith’s work over the past four decades while Christie examines Smith’s oeuvre within the context of English eccentricity. Meyer’s essay discusses Smith’s film The Black Tower in relation to absence and abstraction while de Seife looks at cinematic scale through the prism of Smith’s Gargantuan.

The publication includes a complete fully illustrated filmography spanning 84 pages, with images and synopses from nearly fifty film and video works made between 1972 and 2012.

With texts by Ian Christie, Martin Herbert, Kathrin Meyer, and Ethan de Seife.
Edited by Tanya Leighton and Kathrin Meyer
