Villa vassilieff tell me the story 5 grid Tell me The Story… — Villa Vassilieff La Villa Vassilieff explore les histoires et les identités avec Tell me the story of all these things…, du 14 janvier au 28 mars, ... 2 - Bien Critique

Tell me the story of all these things. Beginning wherever you wish, tell even us. is the inaugural exhibition of the _Autohistorias _program, unfolding in 2017 across Bétonsalon and Villa Vassilieff. The exhibition borrows its title from Dictée, an experimental autobiographical novel written by Theresa Hak Kyung Cha in 1982.In this text, the Korean artist evoked her experience of exile. She used different languages, combining text and image in a variety of narrative registers, telling the story of women associated with the Nine Muses of Greek mythology. Tell me the story of all these things revolves around Sojung Jun, Pernod Ricard Fellow in residence at Villa Vassilieff. Using Dictée as an important resource for inspiration, the exhibition echoes this entanglement of individual narratives of circulation and migration. Addressing issues of displacement, it questions thresholds between inside and outside, distance and proximity, and interrogates feelings associated with multiple identities.

The exhibition starts in a nook on Villa Vassilieff’s ground floor: videos by Sojung Jun, drawing micro-narratives of marginal individuals and threatened local traditions, are presented along a selection of works by experimental filmmaker Rose Lowder. These films alternate between experiments on the film roll itself, colorful and graphic play-on-shapes, and slighty more documentary observations on the passing of time.
