BOOK OUT: Wawi Navarroza in GR-09022017, published by Fotogalleriet (Norway)

We are pleased to announce Wawi Navarroza’s inclusion in the book GR-09022017, which accompanies Fotogalleriet’s exhibition What Remains and includes work by over 100 photographers and artists, amongst them Alec Soth, Daisuke Yokota, Lorenzo Vitturi, Pieter Hugo, Katrin Koenning, Pipilotti Rist, Torbjørn Rødland, Trevor Paglen, Vivian Sassen, Wolfgang Tillmans. Launched earlier this year, GR-09022017 has been curated by Silja Leifsdottir, Charlotte Cotton, Pippa Milne, Edson Chagas, Nina Strand, Mariela Sancari, Mahmoud Khaled, Shimpei Takeda, Tim Clark, Ivan Galuzin, Alina Șerban, Beatrix Pang, and Anouk Kruithof.

The publication is inspired by the Voyager Golden Records, an archive established in 1977 and sent out into space as a coded record, intended as a greeting to extraterrestrial life and/or our future descendants. In the context of the 40th anniversaries of both the Golden Records and Fotogalleriet, this publication examines the notion of “photography today”, looking into the future and comparing it with the past. Contemporary art and photography, because it is always in formation, necessarily admits its own instabilities, its limits and powers, and how images and practices clarify social relationships as well as destabilize positions and scramble histories. Images do not smoothly translate between eras, or between places. There will always be friction and slippage within interpretation; time itself distorts, erodes, and recodes meanings. So to intentionally exclude art historians and artists from writing our history seems a mistake, as artists invent new tools with which to mine the rich interface between past, present, and future

EXHIBIT: Wawi Navarroza “DOMINION” in TERRA COGNITA: Noorderlicht Photo Festival 2012, Museum Belvédère, Netherlands


Noorderlicht Photo Festival  2012  Terra Cognita features Wawi Navarroza’s ”DOMINION“ at Museum Belvédère, Heerenveen/Oranjewoud, Holland, from 2 September – 7 October 2012.

The 19th Noorderlicht International Photofestival Terra Cognita is a photography exhibition about the relation between man and nature. How do we experience nature, and what is its value for us? Our romantic longing for pure nature is diametrically opposed to the practical desire to control the world and cultivate it. Terra Cognita looks at nature far away and close by, as a dream and as reality – nature in our genes, and in our minds.

Work by 115 photographers from 36 countries has been selected for this Festival. The photography is diverse, and flows across the limits of genres. Whether the work is documentary or staged, nature appears to be a vital source of inspiration for photographers. Their visual statements take us along on a journey through a fantastic world.

The 2012 Noorderlicht Photofestival will take place in the Frisian landscape, in interior spaces and outdoor areas. The central location is Museum Belvédère in Heerenveen/Oranjewoud. Museum Belvédère lies in the Museum Park, on the Oranjewoud estate, with splendid gardens and water features and a rich cultural history.
