About the exhibition
Within the gallery, we are surrounded by a continuous landscape. The gentle line of a sand dune image seems to extend into the soft, cumulus cloud above the ocean. On the north wall of the gallery a mountainscape of the Himalayas in the Mount Everest region merges seamlessly into an Alaskan mountain range. Aller encourages us to visually connect multiple experiences. Parallel realities from different locations open up conversations among the different (emotional and political) landscapes in which we live.
Exhibition made possible, in part, by the support of Lisa Burrell Baker, Belinda Buck Kielland, Krista and Michael Dumas, Janice Sarah Hope, Adam Miller Group, Marc Olivié and Marleen De Bode Olivié, Michèle and Steven Pesner, Mary Sloan and Andy Wallerstein.
About the book
Mountain Interval is Aller’s fourth monograph published with Radius Books, following Ocean | Desert, dicotyledon, and the long-term project Oceanscapes.
