A series of images by photographer Nathalie Daoust that probe the unsettling vacuity of North Korea, revealing a country that seems to exist outside of time, as a carefully choreographed mirage.

Schooling by Natahalie Daoust, 19.5

The internationally touring exhibition, Korean Dreams, is a series of images by Canadian Photographer Nathalie Daoust that probe the unsettling vacuity of North Korea, revealing a country that seems to exist outside of time, as a carefully choreographed mirage.

Daoust deliberately obscures her photographs during the development stage, as the layers of film are peeled off, the images are stifled until the facts become 'lost' in the process and a sense of detachment from reality is revealed. This darkroom method mimics the way information is transferred in this obscure nation—the photographs, as the people of North Korea, are manipulated until the underlying truth is all but a blur.

Korean Dreams is on view in N4th Gallery from July 12, through September 22, 2019, with a reception for the exhibition during the First Friday ARTScrawl on August 2, from 5pm-7pm

N4th Gallery is open Monday through Friday, from 10am to 4pm; during performances in N4th Theater and by appointment (505-345-2872). More information is available via vsartsnm.org and nathaliedaoust.com

Nathalie Daoust’s Korean Dreams

Tourists are forbidden from photographing North Korean soldiers. Nathalie Daoust broke the law and lived to show the story.

Consider for a moment if you could smuggle film out of North Korea. The effort it took to bring Nathalie Daoust’s Korean Dreams to Albuquerque is enough to warrant a good long look.
