Artwork description



The Connor Brothers is the pseudonym for British artists James Golding and Mike Snelle.
The duo came to prominence in 2012 and for several years maintained their anonymity
by using a fictional biography. Their identities were revealed in 2014 in a major feature
by Mick Brown in The Telegraph magazine, allowing them to undertake more ambitious
projects.
Best known for their Pulp Fiction series, the pair are also known for their activist work and
their playful hoaxes. In 2014 they created a fictional museum -The Hanbury Collection,
which fused truth and fiction in such a way as to render it impossible to work out which
exhibits were real and which were not. This obsession with truth and fiction can be seen
throughout their work, and is particularly relevant in the current climate of fake news,
post-truth, and social media obsession.
