Dérive Through City Parks

Vegar Samuelsen

Inspired by an increasing awareness of a distanced relationship with the land, Samuelsen's debut solo exhibition, Dérive Through City Parks, features photographs taken between 2011 and 2013 using Polaroid film and preliminary production runs of the Impossible Project's instant film stock, revealing a surreal, whimsical side of city parks during his many walks. Samuelsen’s work encourages viewers to explore local green spaces and forge alternate awarenesses, as the experience of nature is drawn closer to memory.
