Maskirovka

>> [scroll to right]


Maskirovka is the Russian word for deception that has became known as a military strategy intended to confuse the enemy. In the project Maskirovka, a film and 25 photographs are juxtaposed and explored for their ability to question how we understand fact and fiction. The film makes use of well-known actors, and the language of cinema, to enact a truthful account. The pictures present un-related, un-staged and un-titled occurrences. Maskirovka aims to posit the extent to which the reality of fiction, in images and words, may function as a surrogate for truth in times of assaulted facts.
