Bridget Smith: Let Us Record The Atoms As They Fall. The Swedenborg Society, London

Posted 9 October 2019

18-30 October 2019

Opening Reception: Thursday 17 October, 6-9pm

We are delighted to announce an exhibition of new work by Bridget Smith opening at The Swedenborg Society as part of the 2019 Bloomsbury Festival. Smith has been Artist in Residence at Swedenborg House since 2015.

For this exhibition Smith responds to Swedenborg's writings and drawings held in the Society archive from both his scientific and visionary periods. The representation of light and infinite space, making the invisible visible and bringing the distant into close proximity all gather into a constellation of artworks. The exhibition reflects a suspended state between interior and exterior, the earthly and otherworldly. Let Us Record The Atoms As They Fall is a mixed-media installation using cyanotypes, tintypes, lithographs, printed fabric and props.
