The series of works presented will investigate the transferal of digital images to salt-printing, one of the earliest photographic processes, to blur the line between the past and present as well as highlight the oscillation between science and art. The documentation of plant seedlings, grown by Froese, not only explores the themes of life and growth but highlights the fragility of our ecosystem, a subject matter becoming increasingly prevalent and urgent in our world. The exhibition will run until 3 October. Click here to visit the gallery’s website for more information.
