THE forthcoming exhibition, ‘The Road to Elysium’ will showcase contemporary photography of the highest international caliber. For their second exhibition, Heist have curated a show where most of the pictures are mirages, telling stories conjured directly from an imagination of a post- apocalyptic world in the distant future. Each work tells its own arcadian tale through fairytale sets and arresting visions.

Heist is a new gallery dedicated to showcasing established and up-and-coming photographers from around the world. Situated in a luxurious domestic residence, Heist bills itself as an ‘anti-gallery’. Under the direction of experienced gallerist Tyrone Wood, gone are the purpose-built whitewashed walls and disengaged spaces. In – is the immersive and ever-evolving interior that offers artists the opportunity to showcase their work in the much more human context, where buyers and collectors can relate more easily to the work.

Their latest show presents the utopian visions of established and fine art photographers around the world. Many of the artists featured have exhibited in some of the world’s most prestigious institutions including AES+F, Richard Mosse, Amanda Charchian, Laurent Badessi, Kim Keever, Aaron Hobson, Madame Peripetie, Liu Ren and Melvin Sokolsky.

Taking inspiration from Virgi’s Aeneid, an epic Latin story of identity and anxiety about nationhood, the show will feature works from some of the world’s most innovative fine art photo-graphers.
