FNB Joburg Art Fair

LagosPhoto presents the exhibition "Documenting Fiction" at the FNB Joburg Art Fair, 22-24 August, in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Participating artists include Jenevieve Aken (Nigeria), Namsa Leuba (Switzerland), Cristina de Middel (Spain), Karl Ohiri and Riikka Kassinen (UK/Finland), and Patrick Willocq (France).

Documenting Fiction examines contemporary photographers working in Africa who negotiate the boundaries and relationships between photography, beliefs, and truths. Incorporating conceptual and performative practices that expand traditional photographic approaches and techniques, many contemporary artists working on the continent move beyond the confines of the photojournalistic gaze.
Documenting Fiction considers how these artists imagine different futures and charter fictive worlds, using photography as a catalyst to investigate the changing realities of Africa today.
