The World is Made of Stories: Works from the Astrup Fearnley Collection (group show)
Astrup Fearnley Museum, Oslo
4 December 2015 - 30 May 2017

Nobody can see, perceive or apprehend the whole world on their own. We all learn about the world through others, through different kinds of stories told by the media or by individuals. The exhibition ‘The World is Made of Stories’ is a constellation of narrative works that tell private and public stories. Together, they make up a multi-layered narrative referring to different times and geographical places. It is a story about art history, urbanism, politics, memory, sexuality and violence, religion and aesthetics, to name just a few of the themes that the artists have addressed in their works using a variety of materials, techniques and narrative structures. ‘The World is Made of Stories’ offers a polyphony of voices, objects and images, which enlighten while also raising important questions.
