An exhibition by four Chelsea College of Art international students: Heyse Ip, Amelie Mckee, Ambar Quijano and Florentine Ruault.

These 4 artist reinterpret the term 'counterfeit' as an imitation of both physical and immaterial content. In this case, the term becomes a metaphor for the difficulty of identifying true from false, falsehood necessarily having a basis in reality.

The exhibition features Amelie Mckee and Ambar Quijano’s ‘Replicas of Bio-structures’ and series of photographs. They include pieces from the events: ‘Fossils of Today’ and ‘The North Sea’s Extended Research Program Conference’.

By intertwining both factual information and imagination, it becomes difficult to distinguish the true from the false, enabling different entry points into a complex story. Using a range of scientific and journalistic formats, the artworks further address the unclear boundaries between fact and fiction.
