Black Asterisk

Coming to the gallery Saturday 6.30pm, March 14, is the inaugural ‘Black Asterisk Festival of Photography’, otherwise known as ‘B.A.F.O.P’.

Black Asterisk has been picking through the pixels and sifting through silver halides to bring you the best new works from upcoming and established artists. We’ll also be using the opportunity to sample larger collections of work coming through the gallery. The exhibition previews Saturday 6.30pm, March 14th.

This fine looking line up includes some intriguing projects. With her surreal depictions of familiar places, Jessica Ward explores of the effects of living in rural New Zealand as a wider cultural phenomenon of deep connection mingled with isolation, while Alan Dove’s visual manipulations explore the contradictions of nature. Speaking of manipulation, Hayley Theyer is an entirely self-taught photographer who layers imagery to chilling effect. Bryna Foster will also make an appearance with her abstracted urban landscapes that wonder at the familiarity of unfamiliar spaces. Also fascinated by nature, Rebecca Frogley photographs natural anomalies that suspend our understanding of how the world works.

BAFOP kicks off the same night as White Night, the Auckland Arts Festival, when numerous galleries around town will be celebrating with something special. The exhibition will continue in parallel for most of the Arts Festival (until March 22nd) and will end April 1st.
