An Ocean of Possibilities

Wawi Navarroza

Hunt & Gather, Terraria

At the invitation of the photographer Wawi Navarroza the residents of Manilla sought out plants, stones, soil and other natural materials in characteristic spots in their city. She then used the collected (and comprehensively catalogued) material to assemble terrariums, thus creating a psycho-geographic map of Manilla on the basis of the hundreds of locations from which the material came. Under the glass domes the city, its memories, and the raw realities form tiny eco-systems that lead to large conclusions, reflections, and questions.

Wawi Navarozza

After her studio was completely destroyed by a storm, Wawi Navarroza developed a strong urge to photograph volcanos. She ended up in Hawaii, where she was able to confront the harshest, most destructive forces in wild nature. Is she planning to hoist the white flag in surrender, or is she going to attempt to tame these formidable powers with a white sheet? And what sort of wilderness is it, if it can be reduced to the limited scale of a photo?

POLYSACCHARIDE (2000)

POLYSACCHARIDE (2000) visualizes the inner conflict of a girl growing into adulthood in The Philippines. On the one side, the dollhouse stands for the rules and expectations of the family in which she is growing up. Both impeded the girl in her growth - the dollhouse literally. On the other side, it represents her fantasy world. Here the girl can flee the adult life, and her future has not yet been filled in. The series is a critical reflection on the way girls are raised in The Philippines. They are perhaps well cared for, suggests Wawi Navarroza, but they are not cherished as individuals.
