The Truth is Out There (2020) consists of 240 prints. Each resembling an ostentatious Baroque sky painting accompanied with a date and location in an arrangement of archival record.
This set of work was derived from news photos or live videos screenshot of certain date and place documenting the moment when teargases were fired. Through deduction, the context of these photographs was removed and a new narration was constructed. The pictorial facts were manipulated and transformed into a fictional image, whereas its factual information was preserved.
While there are debates on whether art should convey the truth. Contrarily, audiences were staged between the seams of truth and fiction. This project aims to evoke spectators be questionable to the representation of information and to criticize the perversities of deceit.
With the vast visual information and the escalating use of live video in journalism, audiences perform the role of witness. A collective truth was established. Ironically, we are in the times of deception when facts are refuted, information is misinterpreted and truth is not true. Will you be able to safeguard the truth?
