The Armadillo and Other Stories

BY BETTINA HUTSCHEK
@ VOL 3 ON JUN 20, 2014

Bettina Hutschek's artistic practice is set on multi-disciplinary research and thus generates various forms: essay films, book works or performances. Always based on observations from reality and on narrative practices, she juxtaposes layers of fiction and reality in order to create “transitory spaces” - these transits procreate mental spaces and mythological narrations. Put shortly: she tells stories.

Storytelling

BY PATRICK COLE
@ VOL 27 ON APR 12, 2016

Patrick Cole (b. 1986 in London, UK).
Working in the mediums of sculpture and performance, Cole’s work shifts between the Bardic tradition and the actions of a contemporary prop comic. Historically a Bard worked as a storyteller, seeking to create catharsis for the general public. The Bards’ stories would satirise the lives of his audience and act as a social cleanser. A prop comic uses props and staging to enhance the performance, using these tools to connect with and provoke a reaction from the audience. Cole’s work has these ideas at its core.

Why Stories Matter

BY KIM YUHL
@ VOL 4 ON MAR 02, 2017

We live in a world brimming with stories. It begins in childhood when fairy tales shape our dreams. Stories happen in every kitchen, where recipes and family folklore are passed down from one generation to the next. We are surrounded by stories told through film, literature and music that comfort and inspire us. Stories help us communicate our beliefs while hoping others will embrace them. Kim Yuhl believes that this is why stories matter.
