At Bergamot Station…GALERIE XII currently offers two exhibitions – “Alien Love,” French photographer, Sacha Goldberger, and “Longing for Amelia – The Historical and Mythological Landscape” by Matthew Arnold. Both shows will remain on view through September 3, 2022. As always, remember to check with the gallery for up-to-date covid protocols and guidelines – (proof of vaccination and masks MAY be required).
“Alien Love” is Goldberger’s first solo exhibition in Los Angeles. The exhibition will present his two most recents series: “Extra Not So Terrestre,” and “I want to believe,” shot in LA in 2020. Extra Not So Terrestre: Loosely inspired by films such as War of Worlds and Mars Attacks, Goldberger’s photographs tell the story of an alien invasion… Men are turned into cacti, and there are only a few women left. UFOs are very strange and look more like colanders than high-tech spaceships.
“Longing for Amelia – The Historical and Mythological Landscape” features the work of Matthew Arnold, an American landscape photographer whose work strives to connect the significance of history with the topography of the land on which the history is shaped. His work has been exhibited and promoted widely across the United States and around the world in galleries and museums. CLICK HERE to read more about this exhibition,
