Vanishing Point is a two-person exhibition featuring the individual and collaborative artwork of Joshua Nierodzinski and Nataša Prljević. This exhibition features selected work in painting, collage, printmaking, and installation accompanied by an artist book. Vanishing Point focuses on the merging of the artists’ visual languages that evolved from shared studio space, mutual life experiences, and overlapping concepts.
“Nataša’s artistic practice is based on collage-montage processes through which she re-articulates layers extracted from sediments of memory. It is a deeply personal navigation through “a heap of broken images”. On the other hand, Joshua focuses on mapping traces and potential objects from streams of memory. He is attempting to reconstruct the world which occurs as an effect of withdrawal of some object into the event or into deep levels of memory.” - Velimir Popovic
A vanishing point is a term of linear perspective used by architects and artists to reference the point at which receding parallel lines viewed in perspective appear to converge. In this exhibition, these parallel lines are trains of thought and by extension, people and ideas. Van Vessem Gallery offers a place for these artist’s histories and practices to meet, merge, and transform. Two perspectives aimed toward a common point, beyond what both could achieve alone.
The idea for this exhibition began during artist residencies in the summer 2015 at Vermont Studio Center and Wassaic Residency in NY. Work was finalized at a shared studio space, 47 Hall Street, in Brooklyn. NY
The exhibition was on view from April 30th until May 28th informed by the artist talk on May 15.
