This collection of ‘Face Books’ is Alison's response to the notion of how on ‘Facebook’ we use the word ‘friend’ in an all too cavalier way. All of the faces used in this work have been rescued from junk shops and car boot sales, having presumably been lost or fallen out of love with their owners. ‘Accepting’ these faces as ‘friends’ is almost as relevant as some of the barely recognisable individuals we add and ‘accept’ on ‘Facebook’.
Having always been drawn to old ephemera these appropriately titled books offer fitting forums for suggesting appropriate and sometimes inappropriate narratives to compliment these found faces. With wit and wisdom a renewed existence is breathed back into them. The serendipitous nature of finding complimentary phrases and text within their pages is matched with the aim of giving them a new voice, all be it fake… not unlike some of the ones found on ‘Facebook’. After all, the camera may never lie but the narrative can always be invented.
