Kassay’s work concerns a formal approach to the placement and objectivity of paintings. Adhering to a set of strict reductive strategies shared by modern artists, Kassay’s work focuses on situating objects according to their spatial limits while foregrounding the experience of the contingencies and provisional duration of their exhibition.
