Opening Reception: Boomoon - Falling Water
8 March, 6:00 – 8:00pm
Skogar 558, 2015
Flowers Gallery is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of new photographic works by South Korean photographer Boomoon, on view for the first time in New York. In the exhibition Falling Water, the powerful elemental force of a vast Icelandic waterfall is presented as the subject for Boomoon’s ongoing investigation into the infinite and everchanging character of the natural world.
The exhibition features images from Skogar, a selection of black and white photographs from a series of 300 exposures taken at Skógafoss, Iceland. Photographed from the same frontal viewpoint, Boomoon’s images capture his bodily encounter with the waterfall, intensified by entering the freezing water of the pool below the falls, to attain a position where the ‘horizon’, (in this case, the point at which the vertical energy of the falling water meets the horizontal axis of the pool) is situated precisely at the lower third of the frame.
Please join us on Thursday March 8, from 6-8pm for the Opening Reception of Boomoon's Falling Water at Flowers Gallery, New York.
