Davis and Hibbs’ collaboration brings together different aspects of their respective practices to create transformative and experiential installations. Their work investigates “how space can be deceivingly bordered, walled, outlined and mirrored.” Jillian Knipe. 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 that creates a disorientating and mesmerising effect.
The title of the exhibition alludes to the question of vanishing points within the work; are they 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.
