The Royal Standard is pleased to present WARM BREEZE OVER ROCK, a two person show exploring the parameters of place, object and image.
By over-laying objects and sites with digital processes, Masding and Nové-Josserand question our considered understanding of resolute characters and the space they occupy.
Mediums become tested and forced to extend beyond inherent boundaries, by shifting their potential through digital circumstance. Automated disruptions corrupt formal concerns, expanding restrictive planes and previously limited conditions.
Responding directly to site and constructed spaces built through colour, print and video, the works comment on their location within these mediums and their immediacy. Exposing the potential for monumentality through intangible means, this specific interface becomes a dialogue between what is known and what is perceived.
