‘ALL IS NOT LOST’
A solo exhibition by Simone Bennett

‘All is not lost’ is Simone Bennetts’ first solo exhibition at NL=US Gallery.

Simone Bennett is a multimedia artist who focuses on film, photography and audio installations. Bennett researches the connectedness between people and their surroundings to illuminate the urgency and uncertainties of our times. She tackles larger issues of social unrest and climate crisis through personal stories, creating a cinematic hybrid of staged and documentary. In her work she utilizes beauty and humor to convey experience, longing and recollection.

In ‘All is not lost’ Bennett tells the story of our contemporary situation in the anthropocene – exploring notions of memory and place within the phenomena of increasing wildfires. She presents photographs, lightboxes and glass elements, focusing on the firefighters and scientists who protect us, alongside all that is not lost; our sense of home, community, individuality and art.
