For John Keats it was simple “Truth is beauty, beauty is truth. That is all you know and all you need to know”. Hidden in Plain Sight asks us to balance up the merits of accepting beauty without questioning its core.

Hidden in Plain Sight will be on view at Scope New York between the 6th and 10th March 2013.
