An artwork looks into the mirror.
A so-called original meets a fake, without
any indication of which is which. What
do fake and original tell about each other?
Which one appears as the reflection,
and which one sheds the light?
FAKE FOR GLORY takes painting and drawing
as scripts, which can be re-performed.
Looking more at processes than at objects,
the show explores faking and forging
as practices of mimetic re-enactment. While
forgeries are performances, performance
can be considered an authentic fake.
