Nicole Zisman

I frequently entertain the idea that everything we perceive might actually not be real at all, that the world around me could actually just be my senses lying to me. The idea that “reality is a hoax” completely freaks me out, so naturally it became the concrete starting point for my collection. From this, I began to develop different ways of “imagining” garments, of finding ways of putting things that are not really there into existence. I wanted to blur the lines of real versus imagined//artificial. Print was the best facilitator of this goal.

Budor Dora

The Architect, Mind Falls Apart
Exploring cultural phenomena surrounding mainstream cinema in America, Dora Budor creates sculptures and films that expose the technical and otherwise overlooked elements of movies. Budor most regularly engages with movie props—objects which are inherently fake or flawed, yet appear real and perfect on-screen—in order to “reanimate” them and give them a second life through recontextualization

pierre delavie

architectural abduction

french artist pierre delavie has transformed the grand palais in paris into an ‘urban lie’, distorting the architecture of the famed building with ‘neo – rapt architectural’. questioning reality and manipulating city landscapes, delavie changes the face of building facades, integrating fake structural elements and projected light into the existing space. by manipulating the exterior skin of the renowned european museum, he forms a new archetype he calls, ‘architectural abduction‘, where the falsification of the traditional image is changed and reinterpreted as a new space. additions and subtractions render the structure imperfect, changing the manner in which passers-by perceive the historically significant landmark.
