As The Story Was Told | Group Exhibition at Catalyst Arts

10 to 31 March
Opening Preview: 9 March, 6pm

Yuri Ancarani, Gerard Byrne, Jamie Crewe, Diego Marcon

The project borrows its title from a short story of the same name by Samuel Beckett published in 1987, which focuses on an exploration into frames of reference, stories told by an Other and the ongoing interplay of authority from a first person narrator. The text is concerned with the nature of the creative act, the struggle between the dissociation of storytelling, the split within the creative artist as embodied in the narration and the difficulty of uniting these two dwellings. This group show brings together four artists whose lens-based works re-consider and present gathered documents from recent history, texts and objects in a contemporary context using methods of restaging, re-enactment and narration.
