Interview with Nick Smith

OUTPUT gallery

OUTPUT gallery works exclusively with creatives from or based in Merseyside. In the latest episode, we speak to Nick Smith about his beginnings with art education, his practice as a whole, and his current show here at the space. For the exhibition, Smith is exhibiting his 2020 split screen video ‘Where Were You When It Was Shit?’ This is alongside a series of photo works titled 'In The North West It Rains And It Rains And It Rains.' These pieces examine the artist’s youth growing up in Merseyside from 1974-1996, a turbulent period for the region in a show that calls into questions whether history might be on the verge of repeating itself, given the current state of politics and welfare in the UK.
