Current exhibition in the KHIB gallery Rom 8 by Duncan Higgins and Johan Sandborg. This is a presentation of work from an ongoing collaborative project that explores both the specifics and generalities of Place. These grids of images - one of them composed of small paintings, the other of digital photo frames - explore the territory of traces and memories that are central to so much contemporary art practice. A Place Like This is not a single or singular place, but is a composite, a model of place constructed from fragments, associations and cross references. The space it occupies is as much in our minds as it is in the world outside - the exhibition is a mental map, a construction.
