Heino Schmid


The video and photographic documentation of Bahamian-born artist Heino Schmid is derived from the artist’s own experiences and immediate environment. By incorporating and recontextualizing found materials, Schmid is able to question the inherent conflicts of social and personal boundaries and how divisions are created by these conflicts. Often, the artist uses elements of performance, which allows the work to contain a distinct narrative. Elements of nature are also used as objects of observation and as environments to contain other works. Schmid studied photography at the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) and completed his graduate degree from The Utrecht Graduate School for Visual Art and Design in Utrecht, The Netherlands. The artist has exhibited twice this year with the Popopstudios Gallery in Nassau, The Bahamas, and has recently exhibited with the Universiteitsmuseum in Utrecht, The Netherlands.
