Evidence of Existence is an inquiry into memory and family history that considers the formation of personal identity, familial relationships, and opposing viewpoints. Works in this exhibition include staged narratives that consider the structure of personal identity through an investigation into the significance between place and memory and the relationship of grief and loss. Smith investigates personal identity and its association with family history, the ever-changing meaning of place, and the search for unanswered questions.
