Imaginary Friends is an exhibition that takes place in the
imagination of eight graphic designers.
By-products of children’s fears and anxieties,
imaginary friends are so comforting and
controllable in an increasingly unpredictable
life that they sometimes accompany their
creators well into adulthood.
Inspired by this phenomenon, eight designers
address questions concerning identity and
consciousness. Examining how the self and
the other remain divided, though intertwined
through relations of opposition, complementarity
or vampirism, to name a few.
Imaginary Friends is a show that explores
the necessary illusions that enable us to live.
