DARK HOLLOW, A PHOTO SHOWCASE BY DION AGIUS

PHOTOGRAPHER | DION AGIUS

ARTIST STATEMENT | DION AGIUS

ADDITIONAL WORDS | KARA TOWN



Pro surfer, co-founder of eyewear brand EPOKHE, filmmaker and photographer Dion Agius has recently moved back to Tasmania and turned his eye to a new project, DARK HOLLOW:

"Dark hollow is an ongoing art project based in Tasmania that is inspired by, and utilises, the Tasmanian landscape as protagonist. 

Shot in the northeast of Tasmania, this series juxtaposes the harsh granite textures prominent in this area against soft, alien, body forms. In an attempt to fuse the two, the boundary between human and nature are blurred; and by doing so, it demonstrates the importance of the sensitivity of human interaction when dealing with nature.

By bringing artists from around the world to be inspired by the natural landscape and produce work in Tasmania, Dark Hollow hopes to help draw attention to, and raise money for, various environmental issues that not only affect Tasmania, but the world at large." - DION AGIUS

DARK HOLLOW opens this Friday May 18th 7:30-9:30pm, at RON HERMAN SENDAGAYA (2-11-1 Sendagaya, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo) as a part of AN EVENING WITH EPOKHE. The photographic works by Agius will be showcased alongside a film screening by Kai Neville and the latest EPOKHE 18-S1 COLLECTION.
