CECI N’EST PAS UN CONTE

Joëlle Dubois, G.Küng, Gudny Rosa Ingimarsdottir and Heidi Voet
Opening on Thursday 28.02.19 at 6pm
Exhibition: 01.03.19 – 28.04.19
The exhibition's title comes from a text written by French philosopher Denis Diderot ("This is not a story", 1772), which follows the lives of two women in conflict with their partners. Even though the situation has a basis in reality, the author doesn't take a judgemental approach to the morality of his characters. Two and a half centuries later, this elusive tale appears under a new light - or maybe not completely. Indeed, people's lives are dictated by their time period, but even more so by their personal impulses. The four women artists presented in the exhibition experiment and explore new paths, up to the point were reality and fiction merge. And how can we immerse ourselves into the lives of others through stories and artworks without losing our own identity?
