Beijing Landscapes photography exhibition at The Gallery Cafe
In September 2015 St.Margaret's House Gallery Cafe is hosting an exhibition of photographs by Arboreal co-director Harry Paticas. Raising questions about current Chinese attitudes towards landscape and nature this exhibition sets up a dialogue between two catalogues of photographs taken in Beijing, China. The viewer is invited to engage with the ephemerality of modern day consumer waste and timeless markings on ancient trees.
The photographs were taken in 2015 at a time of excessive pollution and the promise of radical environmental reform. Having passed peak coal production in 2014, China is experiencing major public health issues at the same time as instigating an unprecedented growth in renewable energy.View more news
