Theme Exhibitions

Chris Corson-Scott's exhibition resolutely addresses the Festival thematic, Identity, while engaging conceptually with contemporary global discourse.

His 2016 extended exploration of the South Island yielded images remarkable for their unsettling juxtapositions of historic industry within the reclaiming natural world, the remnants of industrial behemoths on which the prosperity of New Zealand was formed. Now decayed and largely forgotten, but uncovered by diligent research and multi-day hikes lugging an 8 x 10 camera, the artist calls our attention to the past reality before it disappears entirely, and reminds us of our collective dependence upon and necessary care of the natural world.
