Fake Plastic Forest

Fake Plastic Forest is an exhibition featuring the work of contemporary photographers and lens based artists dealing with themes of artifice, truth and fiction, and the theatricality of our interactions with nature. Collectively these themes relate to ideas of preservation, the transcendent practice of going into nature, and seeking representations of nature to process and release intense events and emotions such as fear and grief. Our various relationships with nature are revealing of personal and collective selves. The urgency to reflect on these relationships is ever-present as we globally contend with our impact on our environments and consider transnational identity. The artists selected can be considered in the context of numerous other female photographers throughout the history of the medium who have used their environments, both natural and humanmade, as the site/studio the work is made, and a part of the subject. These artists used the context of vast landscape, forests, and trees as site and rooting subjects to pivot from and address themes such as psychology and mysticism.
