The Art of Storytelling - Mensa for Kids
Storytelling and narration have played a significant role in contemporary art for quite some time, materializing as a trend that has developed alongside the increasing popularity of documentary practices in art. Storytelling seems to be capturing everyone’s attention as an ever-increasing number of exhibitions feature strongly narrative work. Whether historically, politically or personally based, narrative tendencies in contemporary art range from highly straightforward and factual to magical and fairytale-like. There is no shortage of contemporary art that conveys narratives relating to topics of sexuality and race, identity issues, philosophy, politics, and life in general. At a time when storytelling in art is so firmly established, there are also many artists whose work is directly inspired not only by narrative strategies, but also by literature in particular.

The exhibition title is directly inspired by Vargas Llosa’s book The Storyteller, a captivating story with an intricate narrative that juxtaposes the voice of the narrator with chapters relating to Peruvian Indian mythology. The Storyteller contains all the elements of a classic award-winning novel: an underlying personal struggle and a search for meaning and truth found along the path of a life-changing journey of discovery. Vargas Llosa’s award-winning story hints at many of the underlying themes in the exhibition and captures the unique and powerful storytelling qualities of many of the artists featured in “The Storytellers.” Just as Vargas Llosa guides us into a mythic and magical world with his poetic tale of a storyteller, these artists are visual storytellers who capture our imagination with their interpretations of some of the greatest stories ever written.

The artists featured in this exhibition are storytellers in their own right, with a unique ability to convey narratives through visual art that is paradoxically as indebted to words, text and language as it is detached from the words, text and language that inspired them in the first place. While the play between text and image is certainly nothing new, these works reveal a very specific and unique link to literature. The essence of the exhibition lies in the references to specific literary narratives as well as the individual narratives that are also inspired by literature and books. Real books, imaginary books, replicas of books, book collections, pages from books, passages from books, pictures of books, installations of books and sculptures carved from books might all seem part of an imaginary Borgesian universe. As featured within “The Storytellers,” these books are visual translations that tell or retell captivating stories that ultimately trace a path from Borges to Joyce, Brazil to Norway, the 19th century to the 21st century and back again, all expressed in art that speaks even louder than words.
