Rose Smith

Rose Smith takes glee in finding everyday, 'pick-up-able' objects and changing them in subtle, subversive ways. By altering the objects (coins, sunglasses, inhalers, packaging) she hopes to give them a second life and allow their value or form to be reconsidered by those who find them.

The sunglasses shown here were part of a series of info-glasses left on park benches around Alexander Palace Boating Lake, each etched with historical or geographical facts about the lake itself.

New work will be made for the Liverpool Artists Book Fair, to include an edition of a new miniature multiple with accompanying bookwork
