British artist Justin Hibbs (born 1971) in his exhibition “Alias_Re_Covered” uses painting, objects, drawing, screens, folded sculptures and architectural forms to explore his ideas of space and how it flows across, and connects with, a range of different materials, and shapes, old and new, and also how sound can enrich the experience, with a soundtrack specially produced by the musician Ben Lancaster.
“Travelling through Hibbs’s species of spaces, passing between dimensions that echo, self-sample and glitch, one might grasp that the whole, overarching the individual works and what they refer to, is a situation, a system, a cybernetic totality, always something else that one might click through to. The result is a model of art making, and particularly exhibition making, that when inhabited so that that the individual artworks cohere into one pulsating larger one, feels simultaneously inventive and a little frightening, since it’s tied to proliferation, not closure.” (Art critic Martin Herbert).
In the darkened downstairs gallery, INFINITE (2014), is a hypnotic video by the Chinese artists Liu Chang and Miao Jing, with a soundtrack by Gan Jian. Two adjoining walls show large scale projections in a fast-moving sequencing of ever-changing geometric shapes and synthesised sounds that demonstrate that the potential of geometry is only limited by imagination.
