Somewhere Between Nothing and Nowhere Luke Shaw & Phoebe Hinchliff
Opening preview: Friday 29 January, 5.30pm
Free to attend all welcome
Somewhere Between Nothing and Nowhere is a collection of new collaborative work by Phoebe Hinchliff and Luke Shaw.
This exhibition explores the notion of the in-between. Playfully riffing on Hinchliff’s attempts to reach nowhere, the work finds itself situated between two points. Beginning with a shared interest in Western films, both artists seek to unravel ideas around ‘the journey’. This investigation seeks to break down this separation, exploring points of tension and release. Hinchliff and Shaw's collaborative practice experiments with vanishing and recomposing––transposing places and layering histories.
Based in Canterbury, Phoebe Hinchliff completed a BFA(Hons) at the Ilam School of Fine Arts in 2019. Her research-based practice and fieldwork is currently concerned with investigating the connections between bodies, the places they occupy and what occurs in the space between them. She is also interested in the conversation between language and land. Last year she showed in Domino Domino at The Physics Room and in 2019 she exhibited in Sympathetic Resonance at The Suter Art Gallery Te Aratoi O Whakatū, Whakatū.
Luke Shaw is an artist and musician based in Ōtautahi. He holds an MFA from the Ilam School of Fine Arts.
