DESCRIPTION

Folktales, fables and legends exist in every culture around the world. These stories serve to entertain, educate and even instill moral values. In recent times, chronicles of real and imagined events have evolved to include historical, cultural, political and even personal references. The four video installations in this exhibition, created by Althea Thauberger, Zin Taylor, Corin Sworn and Isabelle Pauwels present us with narratives that delve into the socio-political history of different locales: the Fassa Valley in Northern Italy, the Scottish Highlands, a renowned Glasgow theatre and the Belgian-occupied Congo.
