VIDEO FOR THE FAUX SHO EXHIBITION itsalltropical.co.uk/faux-sho/
Faux Sho is a new group exhibition curated by (It’s All) Tropical in conjunction with Assembly House Leeds. Featuring work by artists that celebrate the naïve failure of misappropriation and the beauty in delusions of grandeur, we want to rejoice in the fake and revel in the unnatural.
Utilising Umberto Eco’s Travels in Hypereality as a point of juncture, Tropical will be exhibiting work that approaches this text from differing perspectives. The show will combine artists that admire, forge and take inspiration from the replica to incorporate an environment of artifice either in their practice or in the gallery setting.
