Faux is a solo exhibition by Malaysian contemporary arist, Ivan Lam.

A series of still life paintings, displayed alongside slabs of stone represents Lam challenging himself to return to the roots of what defined an artist in the classical era.

Lam is said to question what it means to lose oneself in the service of others, he does this by having his mother title the works.

The press release asks, “When the real and the artificial are displayed next to one another, when we arrive to a condition where we can hardly differ truth and lie, would you stop believing?”
