Storytelling through objects: Eduardo Gil, Alisha Wessler and Brett Day Windham in conversation with Shlomit Dror

About

As a closing event for the group exhibition Story of a Story, this conversation will highlight the artworks of three artists, who use found objects in their installation as a way of communicating different stories and events. Working with a range of everyday materials and excluding texts, plots or characters, the arrangement and manipulation of these items function as literary devices and suggest fragmented narratives, sharpening and deepening the viewers’ act of looking and “reading into things.” The story behind each object either documents a specific moment or is suggestive of fictitious scenarios, challenging both the object’s and the narrative’s origin and authenticity.
