GALERIE WILMA TOLKSDORF is pleased to announce the second solo exhibition by Australian artist James Tunks, featuring a group of new photographic works. 

Under the title ZONE, the artist presents a bricolage of photographic genres with themes of space exploration running through the body of work. From birds of prey symbolically synonymous with moon landings, to Apollo Mission insignias and landscapes of remote locations in Iceland used to research lunar exploration. 
In their technique, James Tunks’ black and white photographs mirror, invert, and double on themselves, presenting subjects in various states of reflection, aberration or perspectival shift.
In its traces of memento mori, indirect forms of self-portraiture and references of astronomical photography, ZONE builds a bridge to James Tunks' debut publication Into Dust while also continuing his engagement with the language and aesthetics of commercial photography and image transformation.
