Places like This Need Protecting from People like Me, 2018

Tales of artistic rivalry and relationships turned sour

Before Christmas, Tom Smith shot quite a famous artist’s cat with a water pistol. The artist got really upset even after Tom explained their cat was peeing in his garden, and that was his territory. In a series of interweaving, autobiographical and humorous anecdotes, Tom Smith explores instances of perceived encroachment of one artist’s practice on another.
