Featured Creative: Elena Cassidy Smith -Artist

April 20, 2011

Following my MA in 2005, I have sought to establish myself as a regional and national artist, and I have widely exhibited across the UK with festivals such as, Liverpool Biennale, Manchester International Festival of Contemporary Art and Bath Fringe.

My current practice is ever evolving and shifting between visual and performance art, interventions and site contextual/responsive work, with the domestic domain, sense of identity/place and patterns of consumerism and humorous paradoxes, reoccurring subjects I explore. Read more…

I am interested in working collaboratively with other artists, particularly those from different cultures as these collaborations can foster dynamic and enlightening dialogue. I am currently working on several collaborative projects with artists from the UK, Iran and Sri Lanka, with a residency in Skatsfell, Iceland later this year. Other confirmed work for this year includes a commission with Wolverhampton Art Gallery.

I am a founding member of a West Midland collective, Strange Ways, along with fellow artists Helen Grundy and Harmeet Chagger Khan. We have just completed a residency in Handsworth, Birmingham and more projects are planned for the year ahead. The website strangeways.org is under construction.

I am also working with artists Ruth Swallow and John Bates to present for the third year running, Image Obscura, a multidisciplinary event that invites audiences to experience home cinema and art in unusual spaces.

I currently have a studio at White Tree Studios and Gallery, Chapel Ash.
