Melanie Smith: Fake and Farce for Seven

Proyecto Paralelo

06 Feb 201824 Mar 2018

In her most recent project Melanie Smith takes on Flemish painting, specifically the work of Hyeronimus Bosch and Pieter Brueghel the Old.
Through video, performance and painting Smith re-reads the work of these artists through a contemporary lens setting up a stage where the theatrical, the pictorial and the moving image overlap.  The result is a humourous and enticing series of works that hint to baroque aesthetics, the History of Art and the relevance in today’s context of the subject matter at hand.
