It has always been difficult to capture nature or to define what nature is. As photography translates nature into pixelated space-time, the meanings of nature resolve and stretch over dimensions. If images are an interface in between nature, the photographer, and the viewer, the contexts of nature can weave and entangle in viewing and reading, looking into and re-translating nature –

Where is nature? What does scenery mean? What makes up a landscape? Is homeland in reality or in our memory? Is a city inside or outside nature? What is the origin?

As a response to these intangible questions, In Translation – The Contexts of Nature represents photographic practice as a means of translation, which has changed the very source language of nature into the languages of daily life, homeland, multi-species, landscape, and space-time. The exhibition tries to interweave and extend the contexts of nature: scenery of daily life, a multi-species community, landscape and data, memory and origin, and the body in situ... The nature that images can only partially capture and define may be the nature we all live in.
