Large inanimate objects, at this state radically defunctionalized, appear not to be out of this world but in the same time they seem so familiar. Filip Dujardin has been working on a series since 2007 whose humor and entertainment value is accompanied by references to art history: »Fictions presents wonderful objects in conceptional subjectivity and is full of jocularity and persiflage. With the aid of a digital collage technique consisting of photographs of existing buildings in and around Ghent, the city of his birth, the artist creates buildings that have been ingeniously imbedded in the landscape and whose construction would be impossible—fabrications in the true sense of the word.«
