The Unicorn is an exhibition about memory and reconstructing the past. The Unicorn refers to the book (with the same title) by Martin Walser, an author whose work often questions how humans continually reshape the past. The exhibition takes some of the thoughts developed in Walser’s writings as an open-ended starting point and nonbinding reference. The works in this group exhibition assume nothing survives as a static entity, and that memory is constructed by looking backwards from a constantly shifting point. What we call the past is unstable and modifiable. The unicorn as a mythical creature serves as a metaphor for the creative vitality of memory and points to artists exploring the line between documentation and art, truth and myth, fact and fiction.
