Fluchtpunkt / Vanishing Point 2
Continuing on from last year’s successful Fluchtpunk/Vanishing Point project (you can read about it here), Tangent Projects will launch its second edition of this non-exhibition project on February 17th. The gallery will be open to the public from February 17th with normal gallery hours, Tuesday to Friday 11-4 pm, with events on February 24th and March 10th between 6:30-8:30 pm (click here for the events & activities schedule).
The literal translation of the German word fluchtpunkt is vanishing point. It is a technical term to explain a method used in drawing to illustrate perspective. The point where two parallel lines meet, where the path meets the horizon and disappears – where it ceases to exist – is the fluchtpunkt or vanishing point.
In much the same way, for the following 4 weeks Tangent Projects gallery will become a convergent point where the parallel lines of the gallery and other projects that occur under the Tangent “roof,” come together to create a space for possibilities.
Artists include Livia Harper, Ajda Kara, Elin Lindecrantz, Violeta Mackialo, Mango and Okra (Roshni Kavate, Agnes Essonti Luque & Lizette Nin), Maíra das Neves, Sejal Parekh, Lourdes Peñaranda, Lucia Retamar, Thelma Vanahí and Tanya Zommer.
