A number of artists today are cultivating ambiguity, wonder and dissonance through work that embraces material pleasure and artifice, often affirming characteristics of the capitalist spectacle. But what values do these artworks present to society? What can they offer in terms of how we understand the world around us? Although works of this kind exist in a variety of forms, I will be specifically focusing on the practice of Lindsay Seers whose work urges us to imagine otherwise. By examining the work of Linsay Seers, we explore the approach of combining reality with fantasy and fiction. We will be looking at how she uses artifice in a way that resonates with the viewer, stimulating contemplation. The ways in which the work creates a tension between methods of immersion and distancing will be investigated.
