Description

Photographic thinking masterclass with Katrin Koenning

Cooinciding with Katrin Koenning's exhibition Swell, which proposes a view of nature and wildness that is more psychological than intrepid and offers a contemporary take on the environmental photography of the 1970s and 80s, MGA presents this fantastic opportunity to work directly with the artist to find your own unique voice and approach to documenting the world.

Over the course of two consecutive days, Katrin Koenning will guide participants along photographic thinking and exploration of our physical and emotional connection to place and environment, and to that which surrounds us.

Studying a variety of theoretical and practical methodologies and challenges to ecological and place-based image making, the course will draw on notions of photographic practice as a ‘being-in-the-world’. Katrin will provide in-depth insight into her own working processes and influences as well as intensive portfolio reviews of each participant’s individual work.

Cost: $495 incl. GST for non-members, $465 for Friends of MGA
Course Duration: 10.00am - 4.00pm both days, Saturday 4 and Sunday 5 May 2019
Location: Monash Gallery of Art

Swell

9 March 2019 to 12 May 2019

Katrin Koenning makes images that sit at the limit of documentary photography. In Swell, the artist addresses collective states of environmental urgency in which we find ourselves. Avoiding expected tropes of disaster-imagery, the work offers counter-narratives in order to focus on what is at stake and to decipher how humans and nature impact on each other.

This exhibition offers a contemporary response to the tradition of environmental photography of the 1970s and 80s. Koenning proposes a view of nature and wildness that is more psychological than intrepid. Her alluring and unsettling images give us a sense of Earth’s beauty and precariousness.

MGA presents this exhibition as part of the CLIMARTE Festival: ART + CLIMATE = CHANGE 2019
