Summary
"Telling Tales: Excursions in Narrative Form explores the varied, inventive approaches taken by leading Australian and international artists to narrative form. Using diverse materials including light, fog and hand-typed text, their works pick apart conventional story-telling approaches to reconsider ideas around structure, duration, repetition and fragmentation. Breaking away from a traditional linear format, their works instead offer cyclical and open-ended stories, narration through non-verbal communication or silence, and mysterious, incomplete narratives constructed through fragments and clues. Questions around authorship, truth and fiction emerge through some artists works whilst others embrace oral histories and live durational events, including shadow puppetry and opera, to convey their stories"
