New Zealand D-Photo - - WHAT’S ON | 2018 AUCKLAND FESTIVAL OF PHOTOGRAPHY -

Auckand-based vis­ual artist Janet Hafoka ex­plores mem­ory and its fal­li­bil­ity, draw­ing on ob­jects from the past as her sub­jects. Her lat­est ex­hi­bi­tion, Ephe­meral, ex­plores the cen­turies-long fas­ci­na­tion with the ‘golden hour’, the brief pe­riod shortly af­ter sun­rise or be­fore sun­set when the sun casts a soft, golden light. Artists have long been in­spired by this tran­sient time, of­ten de­pict­ing this light when it oth­er­wise would not have been. Hafoka ex­plores the idea of tran­sience and ques­tions the na­ture of our ex­pe­ri­ences; whether they are truly as we re­mem­ber, or seen through a lens of our choos­ing.
