The term Flimflam refers to a confidence trick or ruse "“ a play with insincerity or nonsense. The exhibition Flimflam is not a collaborative process between the three artists, rather it is imagined as a generative game in the surrealist tradition (a fabulation), combining chance, contrasting intentions with a dose of malicious violence. Sculptural fetish pieces are subjected to a series of performative and humorous 'abuses', inserted into fictitious narratives within imagined or borrowed environments and subjected to slapstick cartoon violence.
