Dark Ocean Exhibition

Dark Ocean, a solo exhibition by Natasha van Netten at Xchanges Gallery, September 9 – September 25, 2016. Please scroll down for more images and to read a summery of this exhibition.

The Dark Ocean exhibition revolves around whales from a scientific perspective. The show is divided into two kinds of work representing two separate stages of scientific research: 1) Fieldwork, represented as a collection of paintings of whales at sea reflecting a poetic and emotional connection to the whale, and 2) Labwork, described through drawings, paper embossings and installation works which represent the data collected on the field being processed, examined and analyzed in a lab.
