  • This exhibition is defined by a hipnagogic and subconscious universe.
    Hipnagogia is the state which the mind experiences between wakefulness and sleep, when consciousness is not yet active but the subconscious dominates the mind. The Surrealists of the early twentieth century were influenced by the imaginary visions produced in this state.
     
    The huge image, displayed in a predominant position in the exhibition, shows, just as in our brain, layers and layers of icons put on top of one another. These are interwoven creating a web of organic images which far from elucidate makes us dive in a hypnotic state difficult to escape from.
    Once a first image is identified, you get driven by an irresistible impulse to stretch this thread to unravel the puzzle and thus, hold on to a logical discourse to be able to understand something.
     
    This is ultimately a work as complex as thought, yet very close if you just simply let go.
     
     
     Art direction, graphic design, text writer and curator of the exhibition: Anna Curto.
