The exhibition Listening Sites: Tracking Stories by Andrea Wollensak and Brett Terry allowed Konstepidemin to display a site-specific work that takes Göteborg as its point of departure. For a brief period as the encounter with the new and unknown is opposed to earlier experiences, the possibility arises of formulating and giving shape to a third possibility. Andrea Wollensak and Brett Terry look at us and our localities with other eyes are amazed or identify with what they see. They offer the visitor the chance of reflecting over the customary and the well-known while at the same time introducing new localities and narratives.
With a background in graphic design and new media, Wollensak uses Global Positioning Systems (GPS) and similar technologies to explore the links between place, identity and history.
