Mocha non truth
Curated by: Jesse Wine.

March 23rd, 2012 - April 8th, 2012


Mocha non-truth is a show that claims a certain authenticity on ideas/beliefs, despite the fact that this authenticity may be fake or fabricated by the artist(s). A clear example of this is Stuart Middleton's carved wooden bowls; with these works the authenticity lies in the idea of function and potential former use, like sociological museum pieces that explain an objects role in daily life. Essentially via the means of seduction (beautiful art) the viewer is lead to believe/participate with what they are seeing. The platform this participation from the viewer creates is then an opportunity to tell a story/transmit another reason for all of these objects belonging together.
