Hib Sabin: In My End Is My Beginning


July, 2020

This July we welcome Hib Sabin (Non-Indigenous) for a solo exhibition of new works in juniper and bronze. The title of Sabin’s show hails from T.S. Eliot’s “Four Quartets”, which is book-ended by two versions of a similar, inverted phrase: In my beginning is my end / in my end is my beginning. The first use of the phrase at the top of the poem speaks of the beginning of new plans and new life with a hidden core of entropy and ending nested secretly inside like a mechanism that will slowly and silently wind down in time. The end of the poem–which is where the title of Sabin’s show is found–speaks of the “end” as being just another step on a longer journey, and that reaching that end is actually the arrival at a new jumping-off place. Sabin’s works explore themes of aging, death and life cycles, memory and creativity, isolation and solitude, and the next steps in that great beginning-anew.
