NEW DOCUMENTS (ALL TRUE THINGS ARE EQUAL)
'New Documents (all true things are equal)’ presents formally and poetically charged sequences of abstract natural constructs as part of a larger meditative practice by photographer Bartolomeo Celestino. As no image exists in isolation, the sum of this survey details the elusive relationships and primitive responses that all we all have with discovery and the natural world. Opens Friday 1 December (tonight), 6PM at the Nishi Gallery.
