Stories features photographer Philip-Lorca diCorcia’s A Storybook Life (1978-1999) and writer and performer Constance DeJong’s Radios (2015-2017). Through images, audio, and objects, the artists’ fragmented narratives invite viewers to become an active part of storytelling.
DiCorcia’s A Storybook Life creates a dreamland straddling documentary and staged photography through tableaus of domestic situations using friends and family as models. The work is arranged in a particular, nonlinear order, with only four complete sets in existence.
For Radios, DeJong presents a set of vintage radios simultaneously playing intimate and disarming narratives. She says: “The speaking voice disconnected from a body can invoke intense listening, a kind of attention like no other.”
Stories is curated by Kevin Moore.
