This exhibtion offers a fresh approach to photographic image-making. Fragments of botanical specimens float suspended in the picture plane. Yet all is not quite as it seems. In allowing wind to move her specimens, Nishioka has pushed technology beyond its ability to form a complete photographic image – the result enmeshes the familiarity of the botanic with the unfamiliarity of marks made by technological disruption. This representation of normally unseen processes recreates for the artist photographer some of the “moments of great expectation, anticipation and terror” involved in image processing in the film era. Here that mystery again becomes magical.

Exhibition opens: 5.30-7.30pm Tuesday 29 March 2016
