Deep Burn Blues


Alberton House • 3 June - 21 June

10:30am-4pm Wed to Sun
100 Mount Albert Rd, Mount Albert
Hannah Rose Arnold

This thought provoking exhibition at historic Alberton House investigates the impact of human occupation on the environment of Aotearoa post colonisation. Drawing threads from colonial architecture, botany, and Victorian mourning traditions, Hannah Arnold utilises innovative photography and unconventional materials to play with the physical boundaries of photographic language, and challenges us to consider our interactions with and impact on the biodiversity around us. 

Arnold’s photographs document the physical and social landscapes of New Zealand. She is interested in the use of analogue and alternative photography to explore the intersection of people, land and spirituality in Aotearoa. She holds a Bachelor of Visual Arts in Photography from Unitec Institute of Technology, and has exhibited in New Zealand and Australia. Originally from Tauranga, Arnold now resides in Te Awaroa teaching art, and keeps a studio in the Helensville railway station. 

Talk / Presentation by Hannah Rose Arnold: 2pm Sun 4 June. Free entry
