Imogen Kotsoglo opens the exhibition Hverfa at the SÍM gallery next Tuesday the 30th of May at 5:30 pm
Produced over a two-month period, Hverfa examines Iceland’s Sólheimajökull glacier; a glacier on the brink of complete disappearance. Hverfa is a project that seeks to detail the singularity, transience and fragility of the natural world; a world with which man’s relationship is riddled with tension. In engaging various modes of representation, namely photography and drawing, Hverfa seeks to capture Sólheimajökull’s monumental, yet deeply seductive forms in a manner that blurs the boundaries that exist between naturalism and abstraction.
Imogen Kotsoglo is a Melbourne artist currently in residence at SíM in Reykjavik. Through drawing, photography and installation, Imogen’s work seeks to explore the natural world and our perception of it.
