Scarlett Hooft Graafland 'Discovery' Private View
28 March, 6:00 – 8:00pm
Join us for the opening of Scarlett Hooft Graafland’s surreal, dream-like photography exhibition, recording her carefully choreographed, site-specific sculptural interventions and performances in some of the most isolated corners of the earth. The exhibition Discovery draws together more than a decade of exploration, from the salt desert of Bolivia to the desolate Canadian Arctic, the island of Madagascar and the remote shores of Vanuatu, where her interactions reflect an exchange between the boundless realm of nature and the relative confines of culture.
This is the artist's first solo exhibition with Flowers Gallery. The artist says “What pushes me to explore remote places is my nostalgia for regions that are still completely natural. Places that are untouched, where humans have hardly intervened. I’m fascinated by how people manage to endure and survive in spite of circumstances that are often rough and rigorous.”
