The Authentic Fake is themed around hyperreality. We are all curious about this subject that affects everyone of us at this day and age, wouldn’t it be a good idea to hear some thoughts and viewpoints in a lecture format that also fit our times? Collaborating with Hannah Doucet from Shift Lectures, philosopher Pablo Olvera Mateos, designer Heleen Sintobin, artist Mirei Yazawa will be talking about hyperreality related to their professional practices.

THE SPEAKERS:
Hannah Doucet
Hannah Doucet is an artist from Central Saint Martins and makes sculptural work. Based in London and born in Paris, she has been looking at presentation methods within art. Specifically at how we display work within exhibition spaces, how we ‘explain’ it through writing, and how we lecture about it to others. Her work oscillates between the creation of a personal body of work and the organisation of collaborative projects. In 2017, her project Tiny Tiny Spaces, a DIY VR platform was featured in the exhibition Alt Real at the Letharby Gallery. Following her lecture on holography for Tate Exchange in January, she has created ‘Shift’, a performance lecture series involving artists with a diverse body of work.

Pablo Olvera Mateos
Originally from Mexico, currently based in London, Philosopher Pablo Olvera Mateos specialises in the philosophy of art. Although now Pablo occupies himself with philosophy, he is also an artist himself. He has a passion in contemporary art, and has been creating artworks as well as curating exhibitions and art projects.

Heleen Sintobin

Heleen Sintobin is a Belgian furniture designer and maker, from the Royal College of Art. Inspired by daily life, ancient and future making methods, her work strives to convey the power of materials in a contemporary design context. In her practice she looks for a balance between written historical and academic and hands-on material research, experiments and happy accidents. At the moment she is working on a project which explores possible near futures of craft within a post-digital context.


Mirei Yazawa

Mirei Yazawa is an artist who works with body movement, bodily sensation and improvisation to explore how we construct reality and share it. Graduated from Goldsmith College, she has been active in the art scene in Europe and Asia ever since.

The​ ​Authentic​ ​Fake​​ ​is​ ​the​ ​culmination​ ​of​ ​a​ ​programme​ ​exploring​ ​the​ ​nature​ ​of​ ​reality.​ ​After looking​ ​into​ ​the​ ​way​ ​we​ ​receive​ ​and​ ​decipher​ ​sensorial​ ​information​ ​in​ ​Decoding​ ​Sensations and​ ​diving​ ​into​ ​altered​ ​states​ ​of​ ​consciousness​ ​with​ ​[IN]sane,​ ​we​ ​are​ ​turning​ ​our​ ​eyes​ ​to​ ​the world​ ​of​ ​hyperreality, where the real has been replaced by its own representation.
The​ ​current​ ​state​ ​of​ ​technology,​ ​the​ ​explosion​ ​of​ ​information​ ​and​ ​mass​ ​media,​ ​the dissolution​ ​of​ ​the​ ​materiality​ ​of​ ​objects,​ ​and the​ ​primacy​ ​of​ ​images​ ​in​ ​Western​ ​societies, have changed the way we define ourselves both individually and collectively. We are using the idea of hyperreality to question and destabilise concepts such as identity, gender, veracity, origins and social order, touching on subjects like simulation & copy, collective narratives, organic vs inorganic, fact & fantasy, and the consequences in social and political discourse.
The Authentic Fake is a project by Young Blood Initiative, in collaboration of The Vinyl Art Project, Yami-ichi, Resonance FM, with the support of Brouwerij 't Ij.
