Artists disguise truth with fiction in order to arrive at a few different conclusions. Art explores the possibilities of human thinking as it distorts realities to create another fiction in order for the creator to cope, reinvent, or escape. With art we engage in a fictional form of truth. The artists in Keep It In Fiction create unique identifiable narratives that explore their own consciousness and obsessions. In order to further the exhibition limits, each artist created a short story, poem or video to accompany their paintings, drawings and prints.
