On Saturday, May 7, 2002, a
multidisciplinary group exhibition will open at the Givat Haviva Art Gallery,
featuring 21 artists who are treating a special state of consciousness; one
that is on the verge of a dream, full of creativity and imagination and not
bound by the laws of reality. The various works exhibited, whether paintings,
photographs or videos, contain images and hints from the world of dreams.
False Awakening is a kind of unusual experience, like
trying to wake up from a dream and realize that it is not a dream, or a dream
within a dream, or the sense of imitation of reality that always seems somehow abnormal
in a dream. Such experiences open up the possibility of something new and not
obvious, not subject to the laws of reality as we know it, free from the laws
of logic and closer to the realms of sleep.
When coupled with the reality we live in
and our geographical location, this concept can lead to very broad and
different interpretations - personal, philosophical and political. The works in the
exhibition offer us a glimpse into the minds, hearts and souls of the artists,
as we are exposed to their dreams and visions.
Is it a good dream or a nightmare? Is
this a memory of the past or the future to come?
In the space between dream and memory
there is a great place for vision about what is real and what is not, what was
and what will be, who is awake and who is asleep, and those moments where we
feel awake but are actually asleep (false awakening)
