DOMINION

DOMINION is a new installment to Wawi Navarroza's body of works which tackles topography and heterotopic spaces. It presents the artist's return to landscape where she neither treats nature as a spectacle nor confines it into a picaresque framework. Instead, she intervenes into the symmetries of volcanic landforms, the expanse of starry skies and the stretch of the sea to record certain ways of seeing.


As much it is an exercise in looking, the exhibition presents the dichotomous relationship of an artist to the landscape when she chooses to frame such an ambiguous, omnipresent subject matter. It presents to us the question of who or what is conquered-- artist or nature?


DOMINION is also Navarroza's send-off exhibition before she leaves for Spain to accomplish a year-long scholarship for a European Masters in Fine Art Photography awarded by Istituto Europeo di Design, Madrid.
