Ffotogallery is the national development agency for photography in Wales and the premier arts organisation dedicated to the promotion and presentation of photographic art in the country. The gallery looks at photographic practice in the broadest sense, and initiates exhibitions which focus on documentary as well as more expansive uses of photography which may involve the use of projection, digital and other lens-based forms. Through its exhibition & publishing programme and educational outreach work, Ffotogallery consciously attempts to respond to issues which are pertinent to the culture of Wales. In parallel with this, Ffotogallery endeavours to bring photographic work to Wales which is at the forefront of contemporary critical debate, from Britain and around the world.

Corinne Silva – Garden State

  • 7 March — 2 May 2015 *on now

In Garden State, artist Corinne Silva uses photographic and sound installations to examine how gardens and planting are fertile terrain for ideological struggle and the colonisation of territory.

From 2010 to 2013, Silva worked on two projects between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River. Wounded and Gardening the Suburbs examine how the Israeli state uses tactical landscaping to exert control over the Occupied Palestinian Territories. Taking the viewer through national parks and suburban gardens, Silva’s artwork reflects on how gardening can be used to mark out and progressively expand territory, as well as to encourage the Israeli population to spread and settle, to make roots and grass over divergent historical narratives.

The artist’s unique photographic language translates and re-maps the Israeli-Palestinian landscape. Positioned between the material and the imaginative, the work encourages the viewer to construct their own reading of the landscape.
