In an age where the boundaries between the real and the imaginative are continually subjected to re-evaluation and reformulation, SuperModels attempts to open up the discourse of representation and fantasy to a stage of inquiry in which the fictional takes on the properties of the real and the real assumes a symbolic role in sustaining the imaginary. Between the paradoxical and potentially futile attempts to decipher an authenticity to contemporary living, SuperModels intensifies the debate by presenting a series of works whose primary mandate is to question the collapse of representation and narrative, offering a diversity of positions on the face of the real in an age of proliferating creativity. With work by Chris Gillespie, Toni Hafkenscheid, Duncan MacKenzie and Tim van Wijk.
