Matt Smith is interested in how history is a manipulated narrative that edits out marginalised histories and presents itself as a fixed and accurate account of the past. His practice often consists of site-specific interventions in museums and public collections. Smith uses craft materials and techniques, infiltrating establishment organisations and shifting their – and their visitors’ – points of reference. In 2015-2016 he was artist in residence at the V&A Ceramics Studio and work has been recently acquired by the V&A Collection.
