Natural Artifice

An experimental catalogue design for ‘Natural Artifice’, a group exhibition that collects work by contemporary artists who explore photography’s subversive capacity to influence and question the construction of reality, presented to the Glass Tank byEntreentre (Frederik Petersen, Anne Friis and Karen Gamborg Knudsen).

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

Photographs by Ignasi Casas and Frederik Petersen.
