‘Sometimes the power isn’t in the story but in how it is told’

In this exhibition Josh Hook explores the idea of how a narrator impacts a narrative, and also by extension the audience. The works examine a narrative involving two characters, and the events that lead to an ambiguous conclusion.  A story is told by each character, leaving the audience with an important question, who is telling the truth?

Confronted with two conflicting accounts of the same event, the viewer is given the decision of who is right and wrong. The encounter they have with these works is in constant flux as they are given conflicting accounts and imagery.
