Victoria, Canada

Trudi Lynn Smith lives in Victoria, BC, Canada on the lands of the Lekwungen people, the Songhees and Xwsepsum Nations. She is an artist and anthropologist with an interdisciplinary PhD from University of Victoria. Her practice is informed by relationships between photography and impermanence, and in her work she breaks down photography to its fundamental properties to bring into being new forms of collectivity. 

She is currently the Artist-in-Residence in the Making Culture Lab at Simon Fraser University (Vancouver, BC) where she is investigating the role of the anarchival materiality within archives. She teaches Political/Visual Ecology at The University of Victoria (Victoria, BC) in the School of Environmental Studies. 

Since 2009, she has worked with the collective Ethnographic Terminalia, curating exhibitions at intersections of art and anthropology.
