Flowers is pleased to announce the
group photography exhibition Interiors, featuring
contemporary photographers Tina Barney, Julie Blackmon, Edmund
Clark, Jacqueline Hassink, Nadav Kander, Jason Larkin, Lori Nix,
Robert Polidori, Hrvoje Slovenc, Richard Tuschman, and Shen Wei.
The exhibition focuses on fabricated or
authentic interior spaces and explores how they shape the
photographers', the occupants', and the viewers' perceptions of the
spaces, often reflecting emotional states.
An interior space can create an intimate,
insular environment where one may feel safe and productive,
protected from outside elements and influences. Yet such a
sheltered environment can also create an uneasy feeling of being
caged, isolated, or trapped internally. At first appearing to be a
secure and welcoming retreat, being "inside" can soon repel or
deceive, leaving terrifying memories - ones that are too
frightening to remember or forget.
These photographs tell the story of the
current occupants or those who have left them long behind -
including prisoners, children, and royalty - offering historical
and anthropological insight into those who once occupied - or were
imagined to occupy - that space.
