NW Gallery presents
Like Purity, Like Gravity
a solo exhibition by
Carolina Echeverri's solo exhibition Like Purity, Like Gravity pushes for our understanding of nature and re-formulates our relationship with it.
In a series of photographic diptychs and a sound installation, Echeverri explores the purity related to innocence contained in natural attributes, in instinct and qualities related to religion, culture, gender and identity connected to nature. When we remove the natural chaos and the beautiful freedom we were born into, and then create a fabricated, controlled and manipulated disorder disguised as a tainted idea of order, human beings will innocently lose their compass.
Carolina Echeverri wants to reset our relationship with nature, by showing it as it is - or as it may be without our intervention. The child's leg under the dress belongs to her son, and it was precisely this photograph that started her study of nature and man as two separate beings, trying to dominate each other in an eternal dance.
Carolina Echeverri was born in 1980 in Bogotá, Colombia, with schooling in the capital and all her free time spent on her father's farm far outside the city. The free and unruly nature became her playmate, who has then followed her all her life and shaped her view on the world.
She has previously participated in group exhibitions at e.g. Kunsthal Charlottenborg and Hans Alf Gallery, and the exhibition at NW Gallery is her first solo exhibition in Copenhagen. In 2019, she was featured in GUP Magazine “Fresh Eyes” as one of the best emerging photographers in Europe, and in 2021, the Latin America Photography Foundation and Enfoque Visual Magazine named her as one of 30 recommended new Latin American photographers.
She lives in Copenhagen with her husband and two children. See her works at www.carolinaecheverri.com.
