Make Believe is an exhibition of portraits in the media of painting, photography and ink on paper. It presents, for the first time in Hong Kong, Niko de La Faye’s Visages series, a two-year long photographic project conducted between Paris and Beijing. It also features a selection of works by Régis Gonzalez from his series recently exhibited at Lyon Biennale of contemporary art.
The title of the exhibition is a direct reference to Régis Gonzalez recurrent theme of childhood, as well as to the performance-based artistic practice of Niko de La Faye. The portraits presented in Make Believe are grounded in reality and at the same time are imaginary creations. They are invitations to question the idea of representation, and explore the borders between acting, pretending and deceiving.
