Alison Jackson - Fake Truth

Abecita Art Museum - Closed until 25 February 2021, Borås
|Translated by Google translation|

Alison Jackson shows a convincing and credible photo exhibition with celebrities who do things in private and she uses lookalikes in an ingenious way for these photos.

Similarity becomes reality and imagination borders on the credible. She creates scenarios that we may have imagined but have never seen before and she asks questions about whether we can believe everything we see when we live in a media-dominated world with screens, images and the internet.

She comments on our world's voyeurism, the power and seduction in images and our need to believe in what we see.

Alison Jackson's exhibition "Fake Truth" has consolidated her position as a respected commentator with a sharp and thoughtful voice that addresses the phenomenon of contemporary celebrity culture.

Vernissage 27 January at 18.30.

The exhibition runs from January 27 to May 15, 2022, at Abecita Popkonst & Foto.

Facts

|Translated by Google translation|

In the museum's shop, you will find unique photo books that are usually not available in the regular bookstore. The shop is run in collaboration with Neva Books, which is the country's largest player in the field. Neva was started and run by the zealots Erkki and Gunilla. Abecita Popkonst & Foto is the first partner in Sweden, but Neva can temporarily be seen as a Popup store on various occasions and at festivals. The range consists of everything from basic textbooks on photography to foreign collector's editions in very limited editions.
