The Royal Standard: Sam Smith, Frames of Reference

Sam-smith-press-image22 August – 26 September 2014

Friday – Sunday, 12–5pm, or by appointment


Encompassing video, film, sculpture, architectural elements and printed material, the exhibition titled Frames of Reference presents a viewpoint on the relationship of sculpture to film and video. The exhibition deploys a selection of current and historic moving image formats to inspect how objects (animate and inanimate) are framed within the cinematic lens.

Sam Smith works across sculptural construction and moving image, in an exploration of filmic language and its relationship to object. Intersecting the formal and conceptual frameworks that have previously separated these artistic disciplines he invests film and video with ideas relating to three-dimensional space while expanding object-based work into temporal territory, asking us to rethink sculpture as montage and cinematic editing as object construction.
