Glausnitzer-Smith examines several aspects of collecting objects, the re-collection of past ideas and images, voice and autobiography by means of ‘Performance for the Camera’ where the understanding of ‘self’ as portraiture is seen as a two-dimensional layer. Photographic images reflect a temporary trueness to the artist’s enquiry and inventive methods to re-position herself in the world of life’s occurrences.
Places for Glausnitzer-Smith’s work concentrate in virtual spaces (website-project), temporary floors, site-specific places, the Public, International Festivals and Events, Radio Interviews, Books and Publications, Essays, Open Studio, appointed situations and invented public projects.
She lives and works in Braunschweig and London, Senior Lecturer at Kingston University and is external examiner and visiting lecturer in Helsinki, Copenhagen and Halle.
