FakeShop, New York, 1997.
FakeShop is a collaborative group founded and led by the New York artist Jeff Gompertz in 1997. One of its principal characteristics is the mobility of its members according to the piece to be produced. Its activity is centred on technological performances that question and project human reality before technological society, a cyberorganized being observed and conditioned by, and subject to developments derived from the age of computation from a dystopian perspective.
Due to the fact that the work of FakeShop is essentially based on installations and complex performances, its work as artefact is limited.
They have exhibited at BACC, Bangkok, and Public interventions, Bangkok, 2012, WTF, Bangkok, 2011, BACC, Bangkok, 2010, HYCAC, Beijing, 2008, A-space, Beijing, and 798 arts festival, Beijing, 2007, Super-deluxe, Tokyo 2006, ARCO art fair, Madrid 2005, Cooper Hewitt Museum, NYC, 2003, Franklin Furnace, NYC, 2002, Deitch Projects, NYC and The Kitchen, NYC 2001, Whitney Museum, NYC and Eyebeam, NYC, 2000, Ars Electronica, Linz, 1999, among others.
