In search of lost parts of his childhood Briggs’ attempts to think outside the reality he was socialised into and create new ones using his own family. Through the medium of photography he explores his relationship with deception, the constructed reality of the family, and question the boundaries between parents and offspring, between child/adult, self/other, nature/culture, real/fake in attempt to revive the unconditioned self, beyond the family bubble. Although easily assumed to be photoshopped or faked, upon closer inspection the images are often realised to be more real than first expected. Involving staged installations, the cartoonesque and the performative, Briggs’ looks back to his younger self and attempts to re-capture childhood nature through his assuming adult eyes.
