FLOODED Pop-Up Exhibition
FLUX Hawaii, in partnership with Luxury Row, celebrated the launch of Honolulu Biennial Foundation's Visions of the Future, which debuted a collaborative photography and multimedia exhibit, Flooded. The exhibition, curated by Isabella Ellaheh Hughes, featured photography by Heami Lee, art direction by Allie Wist, food styling by C.C. Buckley, and prop styling by Rebecca Bartoshesky This six-week, pop-up exhibition took place in the heart of Waikīkī through a partnership with Luxury Row on the ground-floor of Luxury Row’s retail suite at 2124 Kalakaua Avenue.
Flooded is a vision which fuses climate change landscapes with food, and reveals the intimacy between our collective pasts and our possible futures. Inspired by sea level rise and coastal flooding, the work oscillates between the dystopic and utopic, exploring ideas of adaptation, solastalgia, and baseline shifting—how we react to change over time. These creations function as visible shadows and future artifacts of our changing planet.
