'Floodzone' enters final few days

Wednesday 28 December 2022

A photography exhibition exploring climate change will come to a close at Candie museum this week, giving anyone who wishes to see it another three days to do so.

The ‘Floodzone’ exhibition by international photographer Anastasia Samoylova opened last month as part of the Guernsey Photography Festival in conjunction with Guernsey Museums & Galleries.

Guest curated by Tim Clark of ‘1000 Words’ magazine, ‘Floodzone’ reflects and responds to the effect of rising sea levels around South Florida and frames the uneven costs to society of climate change.

The project began in Miami in 2016, when - through daily walks - Anastasia began to consider the growing conflict between the city's booming tourist and real-estate market and the ocean's intrusion on its shoreline.

Jean-Christophe Godet, Artistic Director of the Guernsey Photography Festival, said: “It is a privilege to welcome Anastasia Samoylova’s show in Guernsey. Her multi-layered work confronts us with our own responsibilities towards climate change and consumerism while challenging the notion of photographic representation.

"I’d like to thank Tim Clark, our guest curator for choosing Floodzone to be represented as part of our special 2021/2022 edition of the Guernsey Photography Festival.”

Helen Glencross, Head of Heritage Services also praised the exhibition.

“FloodZone, which has been shown across America and Europe, visualises the complex relationship between the natural world and communities and challenges the way we think about climate change. Guernsey Museum was keen to show this exhibition and collaborate with The Guernsey Photography Festival again.”
