Exhibited as part of PHOTO 2024 International Festival of Photography, Ruth Höflich's The Flood will present a new single-channel moving image work that addresses the experience of ecological disquiet alongside an interrogation of image-making itself and how image-saturation still struggles to capture intangible registers of scale.

Dissociating from original or archival photographic records of a historical incident that occurred in northern Germany in the 1960s, the work focuses on a seminal instance of heightened perception and collides the experience with a series of seemingly disparate contemporary settings. Exhibition runs from 1 March - 6 April, Thursday - Saturday, 12 - 5pm at Gertrude Glasshouse, 44 Glasshouse Road, Collingwood.
