GALLERY TALK & FILM SCREENING

Photography curator and writer Susan Bright will be in conversation with photographer Jim Naughten talking about his new series Mountains of Kong. This will be followed by a screening of the original 1933 King Kong. (Directed by Merian Cooper, Ernest Schoedsack)

Jim Naughten’s latest project takes the viewer back in time to a fabled place, which may or may not have ever existed. Acting as an explorer, scientist and photographer Naughten has documented a world that existed in the popular consciousness for over a hundred years.


“In the Mountains of Kong I discovered extraordinary, otherworldly landscapes, encountered strange hitherto unknown creatures that seemed to dwell in a parallel universe. I faithfully recorded these true events with my stereoscopic camera, aping the explorers and expedition scientists and photographers of the past.

The work aims to be both engaging and playful, but also will function as a comment on the mutability of history and our ever evolving and malleable relationship with the past.”

- Jim Naughten
