Jarik Jongman (Amsterdam, 1962) introduces data centers and film sets as a stage for ideas about reality and human behaviour in the ‘post truth’ society. More than ever, ‘truth’ seems to have become a fluid concept. Furthermore, the paradoxical situation has arisen, wherein the abundance of information available is merely contributing to our insecurity.
With imagery borrowed from New York crime photographer Weegee, this painting of a suspect hiding his face refers, among other things, to issues of privacy in the age of the internet and to the fact that people are nowadays suing Google successfully, in order to be removed from their search engine history.
