Latifa Echakhch at Wanås Konst’s sculpture park, Knislinge, Sweden
On May 5 and until November 3, 2019, the sculpture park Wanås Konst will open Not a Single Story II curated by
Elisabeth Millqvist & Mattias Givell. The “story” as a concept, the participating artists, their practices, and how they relate to the site comprise the central elements of this exhibition. The starting point, and inspiration for the title, comes from author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s well-known Ted Talk that she begins, “I am a storyteller. And I would like to tell you a few personal stories about what I like to call ‘the Danger of the Single Story’.” Not a Single Story II
is a further development of the exhibition with the same title, curated by the leadership duo behind Wanås Konst, for The Nirox Foundation, a sculpture park outside Johannesburg, in 2018.
