Faithless pictures


9 February–13 May, National Gallery

The complex relationship between image and reality has long been one of the most important topics in art. In the exhibition Faithless pictures, the National Museum shows works from the last four decades by close to forty prominent artists. Using a variety of approaches, they all address the surfeit of images we see all around us.

The exhibition presents iconic, pioneering statements alongside entirely new works. Artists conduct their explorations across a broad front. From film and photo to sculpture and painting. Digital images, old newspapers and pages from magazines. From Vibeke Tandberg’s staged images of herself as a young bride and Hito Steyerl’s search for her past as a bondage model, to Alfredo Jaar’s non-photo of Osama Bin Laden’s death and Mike Bouchet’s pulsating porn fragments.

The featured artists address the power of the image over reality and our own self-understanding. They expose the illusion, the manipulation, the masks. They play, borrow, steal. They take control of the unclaimed images that define the world. And ask: What truth is possible?

Artists on display: John Baldessari, Mike Bouchet, Bernadette Corporation, Thomas Demand, Stan Douglas, Gardar Eide Einarsson, Ida Ekblad, Matias Faldbakken, Harun Farocki, Andrea Fraser, Jan Freuchen, Cyprien Gaillard, Isa Genzken, Rachel Harrison, Jenny Holzer, Alfredo Jaar, Helen Marten, Allan McCollum, Rachel Harrison, Jenny Holzer, Barbara Kruger, Louise Lawler, Michel Majerus, Josephine Meckseper, Katja Novitskova, Trevor Paglen, Maria Pasenau, Richard Prince, Josephine Pryde, Ed Ruscha, Torbjørn Rødland, Sean Snyder, Cindy Sherman, Hito Steyerl, Sturtevant, and Vibeke Tandberg, and Fredrik Værslev.
