“Thus I rediscovered what writers have always known (and have told us again and again): books always speak of other books, and every story tells a story that has already been told.” Umberto Eco
Works of art often speak of other works of art or they comment on their meaning, bringing forward their new narrative - a story which has been started somewhere else, in another creative mind. Works of art are based on other people’s stories or emerge from them. We create our stories, keep on walking, braving our way through life and changing the places we have visited, adding new meaning.
This exhibition is a mixed media show, where different stories and experiences will be located in the different areas/chambers and corridors of The Keep. It is a dialogue between two artists who respond differently to the environment of the Keep and the idea of stories within stories.
