Katrin Koenning: Swell — Monash Gallery of Art


Katrin Koenning’s solo show ‘Swell’ opens at Monash Gallery of Art this month. If you’re in Melbourne please join her for the opening reception on Saturday, 16 March, from 2-4 pm.

“Katrin Koenning’s exhibition Swell, is both beguiling and melancholy. It sits as a contemporary response to the tradition of the environmental photography of the 1970s and 80s.

Avoiding expected tropes of disaster-imagery, Koenning’s recent work offers new narratives around the environment in order to focus on what is at stake and to decipher how humans and nature impact on each other.”

Curator: Pippa Milne
