Inside Stories
Private home, Dordrecht, the Netherlands,
june 2013


During “Urban Explorers Festival 2013” Inside Stories was set within the walls of a private home, behind closed curtains, hidden from prying eyes of the street. The occupant was absent but her personality was perceptible in all objects. In the rooms six artists showed works about worlds behind the frontdoor.

The participating artists approach these borders of sound and image each in their own and differentiating way, from formal and analytic, to expressive and narrative.
