Cactus Launch: This Inferior Mirage

The Royal Standard is excited to welcome Cactus to the building; a new project space run by studio member Joe Orr.  The space opens on March 21st with a solo exhibition of new work by Bristol based artist Sebastian Jefford.  Not a night you want to miss! More details about the exhibition below…


‘This Inferior Mirage’ is a solo exhibition of new work by Sebastian Jefford.


The residue of an activity that may or may not have happened, the exhibition presents an environment that stems from the artist’s interest in the idea of surface as a line of flight, a precarious vehicle for closeness, knowledge, aspiration and red herrings.


Sebastian Jefford (b. 1990, Swansea. Based in Bristol) Recent exhibitions include ‘Records of Garden Keeping’, a solo show at Works|Projects, Bristol, 2013, ‘Surface Area’, curated by Lauren Christiansen at Favourite Goods, Los Angeles, 2013, ‘Dumb Shadow’ at Supercollider, Blackpool, 2013, ‘Performance Fetish’ at SWG3, Glasgow, 2013, ‘Flatfile: A Demonstration of Possibilities’ at Eastside Projects, Birmingham, 2013 and ‘Soft Laminate’ a two person show with Orion Martin at Horton Gallery, Berlin, 2011.
