Dainesha Nugent-Palache, Darkroom Artist-in-Residence.


A solo exhibition of new photographs by Hart House Darkroom Artist-in-Residence Dainesha Nugent-Palache. The photographs are born out of a lifelong fascination with rocks, minerals, gemstones and other naturally occurring artifacts, combined with an impulse to understand the enduring human fixation with possessing the natural world, extracting its resources and the intricate interplay between our desires and the environment. The natural elements used to construct the photograms are typically employed within spiritual practices from the Afro-Caribbean diaspora as well as in Western new-age practices; the images meditate on their metaphysical significance.
