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
