Joanne Masding is presenting solo exhibition stuffs wander off, a shape steps in at Leicester’s Two Queens, opening June 10 and running to July 24.
The presentation of new work by the Birmingham-based artist seeks to think about “what an object could be and how we might experience it”. Combining sculptural and data-based processes, Masding creates “hybrid, animated objects” that explore the “worth, ownership and production of physical stuff” in an increasingly immaterial, endlessly reproducible world.
Privacy screens, holographic car wrap, delicate plaster casts and image reliefs from the printed page all invoke “the power of the objects we own or wish we owned”, and take various repositories like museums and data mines as a starting point.
