You are warmly invited to the Ilam Campus Gallery exhibition opening of An imprecise organisation of forms – Holly Best.
When: 5pm, Wednesday 28 March (exhibition runs 27 March – 26 April)
Where: Ilam Campus Gallery, Block 2, SoFA
An imprecise organisation of forms is part family photo album, part formal game that takes an unreliable approach with indecisive results.
Considering the practice of chasing Cartier-Bresson’s photographic “decisive moment”, Holly Best courts failure with the most precious of subjects, exploring the convoluted ways we see pictures and measure their success.
Holly Best is a Christchurch-based artist and writer. Recent exhibitions include ‘The Devil’s Blindspot: Recent Strategies in New Zealand Photography’ at Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna O Waiwhetu, ‘Garden City’ for SCAPE Public Art in the Christchurch Arts Centre, and ‘Domestic Abstraction’ at Chambers 241. She also writes for Art New Zealand.
