Ronnie van Hout will be presenting The Dark Pool at the Centre for Contemporary Photography as apart of the 2015 Melbourne Festival this October. Taking it's concept from the notion of withdrawing from society — specifically when art crosses a line where society turns against it; Hout finds key examples with the successful American toy company Aurora and in the director Stanley Kurbick’s respective closure and retreat from public life. Questioning how exactly can an interactive children’s toys, and a movie be so bad for you? Being forced to return to the dark pool. The exhibition will be on from the 2nd of October until the 15th of November.
