The increasing presence of the virtual in our everyday lives has an important influence on contemporary artistic creation. Here, the fictional world is shown as almost indistinguishable from reality. The borders between the real and the virtual are breached open and photography becomes a way to record the reality. The exhibition 'Fake & Virtual Worlds' presents work of artists who tackle the question of complex new virtual realities, each in their own way. Robert F. Hammerstiel offers a deconstruction of landscape images from computer games in his series "Waste Land". Thibaut Brunet in "Vice City" delves into the world of virtual realities and the cityscapes from video games, while Cédric Delsaux with "Dark Lens" explores science fiction within today's mega cities.The theme in Lotte Lyon and Paul Horns work "Neufundland" is illusion itself, as they construct their naturalistic looking images of landscapes from models and found objects. Deception is also at the heart of Reiner Riedler's "Fake Holidays" investigating the artificiality of consumer oriented amusement parks.
