The Artist

Kant Smith(b. 1983, Lafayette, Lousiana)

Kant Smith's work explores sublimated brutality in the cultural imagination through a re-contextualization of media and objects. A central concern of the work is the schism between the horrific mayhem of warfare and the corresponding narratives—of victimization, mastery, and retribution—circulated by cinema and virtual reality. Through various formal strategies, including appropriated documents, manipulated video, fabricated sculpture, and self-illuminated paintings, Smith examines the language of virtual and symbolic violence. By creating an absurd rupture in this continuum, his work pries at the intricate barbarity of American media. He studied at the Cooper Union (BFA, 2006).
