Goodbye Pyongyang

fake (Feik): falsification, forgery, counterfeit, adulteration, imitation, trick, bogus, fabricated, fictitious, fraudulent, reproduction, pretended, spurious, concocted, invented, make-believe, artificial.
The series Goodbye Pyongyang presents a disquieting reflection on the act of seeing and believing, through a fictional trip to North Korea. The republic is presented via a playfully coded visual game, which reflects on photography’s expressive privilege to make visible the hidden, to offer certainties that strengthen our desire to believe. Goodbye Pyongyang offers a singular enquiry that investigates precisely that force.
