'On Reality and Other Stories'

Pieter Hugo at Forest Centre Culturel, at BRASS

Hugo's first solo show in Belgium, this exhibition covers three bodies of photographic work: Looking Aside, the Hyaena Men, and Nollywood. Through these varied series, Pieter Hugo reveals the complexities and paradoxes of Africa, an ethnically diverse continent where traditions and beliefs blend with occidental influences inherited from colonialism. The digital era, with its disturbing manipulations of truth, confirms what Pieter Hugo is fully conscious of: that whenever we are faced with photography, there is that omnipresent but also creative doubt, stimulating us to forge new ways forward and to construct a lyrical universe complete with its own distinct features.

27 August - 26 November
