Something & Son

“Something & Son is a London based practice founded by Andrew Merritt and Paul Smyth. Our work is rooted in a inquisitiveness and experimentation and reflects our varied backgrounds and shared passion for art, engineering, social systems, and the environment.  We like to create popular, provocative and witty work that tackles the social and environmental challenges of our time. A keenness to collaborate has led us to work alongside swift experts, mushroom men, scrapyard merchants, farmers, horticulturalists, scientists and sociologists.  Recent lectures, talks and workshop have included the Serpentine Gallery, Kunst-Werke (Berlin), the Science Museum Dana Centre, Gottlieb Duttweiler Institute (Zurich), Institute of Contemporary Art, the Barbican, SALT (Istanbul) and the Victoria & Albert Museum” (CCANW).

Something & Son exhibited work at White Moose as part of Soil Culture: Young Shoots from 16 April – 4 June 2016. The exhibition showed work they produced during their Soil Culture residency at Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.
