CIRCLE #1 ; A Storytelling Infrastructure
Performing the Fringe at Konsthall C, Stockholm, Sweden
March 13 – June 14, 2020
Performing the Fringe is an artistic and curatorial research process that explores three different contexts in the rural–urban fringe areas of the cities of Stockholm, Pori and Vilnius. It started with inviting artists to undertake research hikes during spring and summer 2019, experiencing three distinct environments that have now materialized into artistic commissions. Exhibition Performing the Fringe at Konsthall C is the first iteration in the series of presentations of those artistic commissions.
My work in Performing the Fringe:
CIRCLE #1; A storytelling infrastructure
Engraved stones, cotton textiles, natural dyes, earth pigments
Reality starts with stories. There is a great deal of truth even in the most fictional ones, because trough them we reflect who we are and what is our relation to others. CIRCLE #1 provides an infrastructure for storytelling, promoting it as something that contemporary people could do. It suggests a communitarian use of the exhibition space, based on the collaborative creation of stories. The stories are oral, and are created when 3 or 6 visitors declare their wish to participate.
