Art stresses the illusory qualities of images, vision and language, in which we still place faith as ways of representing and knowing the world. Forms of Deceit brings together a group of emerging artists who engage with themes of truth and deception by questioning the trustworthiness of disparate forms of communication through their chosen media. The exhibition asks: Why is it that in the presence of visual art we ultimately resort to language? Can images and
language be trusted? And can artists themselves be trusted?

Special event:
Forms of Deceit artists bcmp (Sam George and Ace Wagstaff) will undertake a silent performance in the gallery on Sunday 13 July and Sunday 27 July from 1 pm – 5 pm, investigating the possibility of maintaining friendship and artistic collaboration while avoiding spoken language.
