John Smith

Britanski filmski i video umjetnik, poznat po razigranom subverzivnom stilu u korištenju dokumentarnih snimaka. Koristeći sirovi materijal svakodnevnice, njegovi filmovi istražuju i razotkrivaju filmski jezik i manipulativnu moć filma. Autor je preko pedeset filmskih i video radova i umjetničkih instalacija, predstavljenih u brojnim svjetskim galerijama i nezavisnim kino dvoranama te nagrađivanih na međunarodnim filmskim festivalima. Živi i radi u Londonu.

born in Walthamstow, London in 1952 and studied film at the Royal College of Art. Since 1972 he has made over sixty film, video and installation works that have been shown in independent cinemas, art galleries and on television around the world and awarded major prizes at many international film festivals. Known for their formal ingenuity, subversive wit and oblique storytelling, his films blur the perceived boundaries between documentary and fiction, playfully exploring and exposing the language of cinema.
