United Visual Artists TOWNER, EASTBOURNE

Vanishing Point to Eastbourne. Inspired by sketches of Leon Battista Alberti, Leonardo DaVinci and Albrecht Durer, UVA sends lines into space from an arbitrary vanishing point, creating different volumes, divisions and rooms to be explored by the audience.

After stunning Berlin audiences and critics alike last year, UK artists United Visual Artists (UVA) are bringing their exciting new work Vanishing Point to Eastbourne. 

Vanishing Point opens for the first time in the UK to Sussex audiences on 18 April 2014 at Towner’s award-winning gallery space, the largest in the South East of England. 

Inspired by sketches of Leon Battista Alberti, Leonardo DaVinci and Albrecht Dürer, UVA sends lines into space from an arbitrary vanishing point, creating different volumes, divisions and rooms to be explored by the audience. Drawing upon their studies in programmable architecture, they will be developing a body of work for Towner using light, installation, print and screen. 

A fascination with the physical presence of light is embedded in UVA’s work and they have explored different ways of creating a structure from light. Vanishing Point employs perspective as both a tool and visual outcome to reshape, redefine and represent a space.
