“Storytelling lies at the heart of my work, developed out of encounters, conversations and the discovery of abandoned histories.”
We are delighted to present There’s a Strange Wind Blowing, the first solo-show by Serena Korda. Her work is impelled by a detective-like uncovering of lost stories, real-lives and impossible quests. Through performance, print and film, she works these stories back into the fabric of the everyday, telling them through the magic of the makeshift and handmade.
There’s a Strange Wind Blowing is both the title of the show and of a puppet performance that Korda created. The narrative hinges on a fictional meeting on a mountain-top between the mountaineer Annie Smith Peck and Walt Disney. The performance is staged in a 1940s kitchen cabinet that opens up to become a Wunderkammer of surprise and illusion.
A STRANGE WIND BLOWING, a Tintype publication, accompanies the show with a foreword by Sue Jones, Director of the Whitstable Biennale.
