About

Davis and Hibbs’ collaboration brings together different aspects of their respective practices to create transformative and experiential installations. The works are constructed site specifically, using modular elements such as steel frameworks and mirrored sculptures that both reflect and reconfigure the space, acting as an endlessly changing compositional device as the viewer navigates the work. Creating both a disorientating and mesmerising effect, the work investigates “how space can be both clearly and deceivingly bordered, walled, outlined and mirrored. Their resulting work highlights possibilities, pathways and dead ends as short-lived arrangements which, despite their calculated appearance, are actually subjective compositions, susceptible to constant re-assembly.” Jillian Knipe, Wall Street International. 

The title of the exhibition alludes to the question of vanishing points within the work; are these illusory as in a reflection or are they physically real?  It also relates to the formal language of architecture and linear perspective in drawing, which have long used geometrical methods such as the Vanishing Point to represent three-dimensional space onto a two-dimensional surface. Davis and Hibbs individual practices share common references to the social, political and aesthetic agendas encoded within architectural structures and in their different ways renegotiate the visual and ideological legacies of modernism to probe both real and idealised notions of space.

Vanishing points is the 5th collaborative exhibition of site Responsive Installations made over the last year by Justin Hibbs and Rosalind Davis. Previous collaborations include; no format Gallery (2018) Seven Oaks Kaleidoscope Gallery, Arthouse 1 Gallery and My Cup of Coffee is my Cup of Tea (all 2019).
