  • Artforum Critics’ Pick: Bridget Smith ~ Himali Singh Soin

    Published in Artforum, May 2015

    A vacant auditorium is rendered in four cyanotype prints, Blueprint for a Sea, 2015, that utilize light to mimic outlines of waves. At first, the four appear identical; then, a very slight shift in perspective is noticeable. The series thus seems to rise and fall in a rhythm of its own. Five opaline globe lights hang as celestial objects, so that the narrative of the interior washes up against the vastness of outer space. Places become psychological: in this situationist’s dystopia, architecture rid of function is of infinite discontent and infinite desire.

  • Bridget Smith Interview ~ Helen Sumpster

    Published in Time Out, August 2007

    ‘Smith’s use of slow exposure, combined with the available lighting – which could be spotlights, fluorescent strips or chandeliers – brings a richness of colour to her images. Whether she’s highlighting the oak-panelled opulence of the Vintners’ Hall in Blackfriars or the Southall Working Men’s Club with its scuffed, checkerboard linoleum and cork-effect ceiling tiles, there’s a similar feeling of warmth: ‘That’s important because it shows both the vibrancy and inclusive nature of these clubs. In some ways they’re exclusive because you have to be a member, but that’s also what’s connecting people.’
