About

Justin Hibbs, Matthew Taylor, Magali Reus, Curated by Sami Jalili A recessive psychology pervades. A crisis of confidence and sense of collapse. New spaces are opening up where before the establishment's bravura denied the possibility of alternative trajectories. The voids that appear like intertemporal portals in the fabric of history here find form in the imposition of idealised yet threatening abstract elements on the landscape of hindsight. This historic narrative is our new territory. Its borders are those imposed by the idiolects of the great movements we rely on to navigate through time. The altars we now build stand testament to these disparate languages, as if cities built upon this new meta-landscape, a topography devoid of terra incognita.
