Darcy Smith is an emerging artist from Melbourne, Australia predominantly working in sculptural installation. In recent projects, Smith has used live events to explore how processuality and choreography through everyday movement can exacerbate problems that then lead to reflect the presupposed constructed social norms that situate females in the social sphere. Glass is an integral material to Smith’s practice as both the physical and metaphorical relationships that arise from glass both manipulate and sway the trajectory of investigation after moving forward from the ideas of change through the effects of trauma.
