Pseudologia refers to the rare phenomenon ‘pseudologia fantastica’, in which fantasies and falsehoods are represented as real occurrences. The title mimics the role of the artist, who lives part of the time in an alternate reality; listening to objects, mining shapes, constructing and deconstructing images and coaxing them to give up their secrets.
Pseudologia examines the metaphysics of everyday objects, probing their unseen and in-between spaces. This collection of photographic experiments plays in zones of transition and slippage, highlighting unexpected relationships that lie beneath and beyond the surfaces we know. Signed and numbered.
