David Osbaldeston, True Stories Vol. 2, 2001, photocopies, dimensions variable

David Osbaldeston’s photocopied drawings attempt to blur narratives of fact and fiction. Some drawings are based on material extracted from classic novels such as Robinson Crusoe; others confuse these inventions with real experiences, the work constantly flickering between these two points of view. Everyday activities, thoughts and images are recorded on A3 as supposedly true stories but, in fact, their authenticity is constantly left open to question. To further the confusion the work is editioned in a total of 312 stories, presented and numbered as photocopied prints.
