Theme Exhibitions

New Zealand photographer working in Berlin, Conor Clarke was the recipient of the Auckland Council Artist Residency in 2015. Her residency was spent at Waitawa Regional Park, during which time Clarke produced a suite of site-specific photographs within the tradition of hand-printed black and white analogue photography. These tightly-cropped works question notions of beauty and the sublime by focussing on subjects, such as gorse, and vistas of human industry, specifically Karamuramu Island quarry, which are typically deemed unattractive and unspectacular.  This exhibition is supported by Auckland Council and Creative New Zealand.
