Artist Billboard’s sixth commission (March-May 2022) is:

Authentic-Forgery by Stephen Williams

‘Statements or propositions which at first sound reasonable now often lead to conclusions that seem logically unacceptable.

The paradox of the difference between real and fake has always been porous but can be weaponised and strategic in social manipulation.

Manipulation being embedded so deep is hard to recognise.’
