Dark Hollow is an ongoing art project based in Tasmania that is inspired by, and utilises, the Tasmanian landscape as protagonist.
Shot in the north-east of Tasmania, this series juxtaposes the harsh granite textures prominent in this area against soft, alien, body forms. In an attempt to fuse the two, the boundary between human and nature are blurred; and by doing so, it demonstrates the importance of the sensitivity of human interaction when dealing with nature.
By bringing artists from around the world to be inspired by the natural landscape and produce work in Tasmania, Dark Hollow hopes to help draw attention to, and raise money for, various environmental issues that not only affect Tasmania, but the world at large.
Dark Hollow opens Friday, May 18, 7:30pm at Ron Herman Sendagaya (2-11-1 Sendagaya, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo) as a part of An Evening With Epokhe. Dark Hollow will be showcased alongside a film screening by Kai Neville and the latest EPOKHE 18-S1 COLLECTION.
