An exhibition of the work of artist Alison Stockmarr ‘Face Books’ is a collection of work poking fun at Facebook. By matching old photographs with suitably titled books, profiles are constructed, creating a library of invented friends of yesteryear. Apertures are cut into books, with photographs and ephemera collaged within their pages. Appropriate and sometimes inappropriate, narratives are constructed to complete the picture, all be it fake…not unlike some of the ones on Facebook!
