For And Against Nature by Gary Carsley 
[08.11.14 — 24.01.15]
Grey Projects is proud to present For and Against Nature, an exhibition by Gary Carsley.
Gary Carsley will be showing new photo-based works, including photo adhesives and projections. The images include a circular moon gate from the Chinese Scholars Garden in NY that opens up on The Great Pagoda in Kew Gardens in London. Nature as it passes through Carsley's images is malleable and intractably conditioned by human desires. These beautiful new works do not show nature 'as it is’; rather, Carsley's works deliberately queers it.
