In this summer’s international group exhibition at Wanås Konst, artworks influenced by place, history, identity, combine the grandiose and mundane. The story as a concept as well as the participating artists’ practices and how they relate to the site comprise the central elements. 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’.”
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s well-known TED Talk The Danger of a Single Story is the starting point for the exhibition and the inspiration for the title, Not A Single Story
. Adichie argues: “Stories matter. How they are told, who tells them, when they’re told, how many stories are told, are really dependent on power.
The Exhibition is up from May 5th until 3 November 2019 .
