‘Fault/Fracture’: An exhibition by Dakota Gordon
Head down to Error404store next week if you’re in Victoria on April 2nd for an evening to celebrate Dakota Gordon’s body of work: ‘Fault / Fracture’ (2021) exploring the intricate layers of the earth, planetary fragility and resilience.
This deeply personal collection of photographs explores geological masses in a topographical portrayal, while communicating Dakota’s inherent connection to land and nature. Her images ominously capture the cascading rock formations and eroded rocky hollows of Boon Wurrung country in south-west Naarm.
“With ever-changing landscapes that are driven by uncontrollable forces, manipulated by light, movement and time, this body of work – all photographed in one day – was sought out to document a fleeting moment in nature” she says.
Dakota’s photography and love for sound and music are inherently intertwined. On the evening, she will be sharing unreleased demos to compliment her body of work, inspired by solitary environmental encounters.
Not only does Dakota’s passion for nature and the environment speak through her extensive documentation of the land through photography, she has dedicated her life to protecting and caring for animals and country; educating the masses on the environment, extinction prevention, animal welfare and the anthropological weight of the Indigenous land on which we dwell on.
Being shot on Boon Wurrung country of the Kulin nation, 50% of proceeds from all sales from this exhibition will be donated to the Boon Wurrung Foundation.
We acknowledge the Wurundjeri people of the the Kulin nation, who are the Traditional Custodians of the land on which this exhibition will take place, and we acknowledge the Boon Wurrung people of the Kulin nation, who are the Traditional Custodians of the land on which this body of work was photographed.
