A Novel by Francesca Szemere
In my project, called “Stories From The World”, I collaborate with participants from around the world to help them shape their stories and translate them into video performances. Through this project, participants can get closer to their pain and reimagine it, while viewers can visualise complex topics that might be usually distant to them through a close and intimate perspective of someone’s story.
The sculpture symbolises my project as a magnifier on important social matters – which have many layers and ‘facets’ – through the ‘inner perspective’ of someone’s account. The magnified pictures recall the dialogue in the video performances between humans, nature, and creativity.
