People who have saved this event:


Natural Artifice is a group exhibition that shows work by contemporary artists who explore photography’s subversive capacity to influence and question the construction of reality.


Natural Artifice is about the truth hidden within illusions and visual deceit, it’s about the simultaneously absurd and indispensable reliance on a consistent and trustworthy image of reality.

Ten practitioners contribute their vision of the collision between photographic deceit and reality to show the current state of representational practices. Natural Artifice asks what it means when photography remains the vehicle through which we learn about and disseminate experience and aspirations for material reality despite decades of criticism directed towards the intuitive assumptions of photography’s veracity and objectivity.

Natural Artifice is made possible with support from the Danish Arts Foundation and The Dreyer Foundation.
