INTRODUCING JONI SMITH - SHOWING IN ORDINARY WORLDS (10-23 AUGUST)

INTRODUCING JONI SMITH - SHOWING IN ORDINARY WORLDS (10-23 AUGUST)

Joni Smith builds fictitious worlds using everyday objects.  She works mostly with maps, reordering them into new worlds. Before assembling the work Joni devises a set of rules to follow & from then on becomes machine-like in her adherence to them.  Decisions are made, but not ones that compromise the rule set.

"The idea becomes a machine that makes the art", Sol LeWitt

The work is labour-intensive, giving the impression of a kind of natural development, where rocks & land are slowly formed, or reformed.  As each piece takes shape it is clear to see one world breaking down as the other emerges.  Joni sees her practice as a series of quasi-scientific investigations, contrasting installation and paper based work.
