Hotel Elephant is the studio of Elephant & Castle artist Reuben Powell who is exhibiting with Ivan Black, creator of complex sculptures which spiral towards a shifting vanishing point.

Visitors can interact with Ivan Black's kinetic sculptures to increase their mobility.

Reuben Powell's chronicle of change in Europe's largest redevelopment site involves recording in drawings what is vanishing both slowly and sometimes suddenly.

Guests at the opening night last month enjoyed Ivan Black's ceiling mounted kinetic scultpures and Reuben Powell's drawings and piezo prints in special lighting.

All works are for sale. Vanishing Point is open this week Wednesday to Sunday 11am to 6pm; admission free.
