Alison Jackson’s Voyeuristic Photographs: Seeing is Deceiving
What: For the first time in Athens, Alison Jackson, a contemporary BAFTA and multi-award-winning artist, exhibits a retrospect of her unique photography and video works. Jackson’s work explores one of the most important topics of our time: ‘’Can we believe what we see in a mediated world of screens, imagery and the internet?’’ She comments on our voyeurism, the power and seductive nature of imagery, our need to know and believe. Looking at her landmark series ‘Mental Images’ Jackson delves into the cult of celebrity– an extraordinary phenomenon created by the media, publicity industries and the public figures themselves.
The artist presents in Athens her ‘never seen before’ Disaster Series in dialogue with a selection of previous and current works, depicting our fantasies of fear in a world of constant dread exacerbated by endless 24/7 bad news delivered by the media. Besides, Jackson presents her director’s cut video from the exclusive Duran Duran 40 year’s anniversary movie.
