On May 5, 2019, the sculpture park Wanås Konst will open Not a Single Story II, an exhibition with artists who consider the site, historiography, and identity from a multitude of perspectives. The starting point, and inspiration for the title, comes from author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s well-known Ted Talk that she begins, “I am a storyteller. And I would like to tell you a few personal stories about what I like to call ‘the Danger of the Single Story’.” Not a Single Story II is a further development of the exhibition with the same title, curated by the leadership duo behind Wanås Konst, for The Nirox Foundation, a sculpture park outside Johannesburg, in 2018.

Not a Single Story II opens May 5, 2019 at Wanås Konst. It is a further development of the large exhibition that Wanås Konst’s leadership duo curated for the Nirox Foundation sculpture park, located outside Johannesburg in South Africa, in 2018, as a collaboration between sculpture parks on two continents. In the summer of 2019, the story continues at Wanås Konst. The starting point,  and inspiration for the title, is author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s well-known Ted Talk The Danger of the Single Story, 2014, in which she says about the significance of stories: “How they are told, who tells them, when they’re told, how many stories are told, are really dependent on power.”

With a concentrated selection of artists based in South Africa, Sweden, and internationally, and with some new names, the exhibition is transformed in a new place in 2019 and creates space for other stories. For Not a Single Story II at Wanås Konst, the artists take their works further and develop new ones. In sculptures that are soft or razor sharp, and that combine fantasy as well as fear, they consider identity and historiography from a multitude of perspectives. The story lends itself to a metaphor and carries endless possibilities. In conceptual and poetic ways the artists explore where history is found, the experience of place and shared history. The exhibition will spread out in the sculpture park, up into the treetops and inside the buildings; it will occupy space and transform the landscape.
