Fifi is working on an installation with the working tile of ‘Fragile Land. The artworks will include film, light boxes, water colours, slide projected images, and hand made projection machines. The works are a kaleidoscope stories of Ireland in 1000 years time, through the prism of human migration.
’36 views of the Islands’ from the forthcoming installation – Fragile Land (working title)
Fifi’s work was last exhibited at The Street, Tallaght University Hospital, Dublin from February to the end of May 2023.
Illustrating the evolution of GRID Collective over the past six years, A Geometric Progression, which is Tallaght University Hospital’s opening exhibition for 2023, includes new works by GRID Collective members, Helen Blair, Mary Catherine Nolan, and Fifi Smith, as well as several pieces demonstrating GRID Collective’s ethos of collaborative process.
Holding the exhibition in a hospital environment demanded awareness of the specificity of this location and so requires different ways of presenting. The 40 pieces exhibited, has given GRID Collective the opportunity to see their works with a fresh, and often revealing, perspective. This in turns allows for new interpretations and renewed consideration of GRID Collective’s approach.
