An imprecise organisation of forms
ILAM CAMPUS GALLERY, BLOCK 2, SoFA, 27 MARCH - 26 APRIL 2018

An imprecise organisation of forms is part family photo album, part formal game that takes an unreliable approach with indecisive results. Considering the practice of chasing Cartier-Bresson¹s photographic ³decisive moment², Holly Best courts failure with the most precious of subjects, exploring the convoluted ways we see pictures and measure their success.
Holly Best is a Christchurch-based artist and writer. Recent exhibitions include 'The Devil¹s Blindspot: Recent Strategies in New Zealand Photography' at Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna O Waiwhetu, 'Garden City' for SCAPE Public Art in the Christchurch Arts Centre, and 'Domestic Abstraction' at Chambers 241. She also writes for Art New Zealand.
