A good Story never started with a Glass of Milk’ is a polyphonic exhibition based around the idea of the anecdote. Instead of works of art, this show will gather oral material through a serie of public live meetings with the artists. However, it will not be a question of « telling » or « describing » pieces instead of showing them, nor is it about art at all. Maybe it’s not exactly an exhibition, but since art has always been about telling stories, it still counts.The anecdote is an archaic that gathered people together around the fire, around a meal. Brief and exemplary, the anecdote is a story that comes after the fact, that interprets reality and delivers a meaning, a secret. A collection of sensations, affects, reflections, images, it punctuates the language of the philosopher who uses it to reveal the complexity of a thought; it is a « savoir-dire », a theory in action, a mnemonic. (Definition borrowed from Claire de Ribaupierre, Anecdotes, JRP 2007)
