Leading Australian artists push the boundaries of photography in form and matter as they meditate on our human relationship with nature.
Bondi Pavilion Gallery Bondi Pavilion Gallery opening hours 10am - 5pm daily

Earth, Sea and Sky presents an exhibition of leading Australian artists and photographers; Christian Thompson, Derek Henderson, Joseph McGlennon, Luke Shadbolt, Nici Cumpston, Polixeni Papapetrou, Petrina Hicks, Tamara Dean and Trent Parke, pushing the boundaries of photography in form and matter as they meditate on our relationship with the environment.
This collection of work explores the human fascination with undulating waterways and ocean scapes, our relationship and connection to the flora and fauna of country, soothsaying ephemeral cumulus cloud formations and sky colours, and the grinding effects of climate change on our world. Earth, Sea and Sky reflects on the natural world and our explicitly human place within a complex network of eco systems that mirror each other. It is within Earth, Sea and Sky that we can be humbled by the interconnected place of our humanity in the immaculate expanse of nature and, in being so, come to know the world around us as exquisite force majeure, more vulnerable than the sum of its parts.
Earth Sea and Sky is curated by Elizabeth Reidy
Supported by Michael Reid, Sydney.
A Sydney Festival 2024 event.
This exhibition will be on view from 9 December to 28 January.
