Walking in the Dreams - Image

 


We all have another "self", called the subconscious; it lives in our inner soul; it is hidden in our heart. It is similar but sometimes contradictive to the "self" in daily life; the feeling is familiar but sometimes strange. The two "selves" become closer when we dream as our dreams tell us quietly about our hidden "self".

Dreams have countless ties and complex connection between the soul and body, the conscious and subconscious, imagination and reality. They are places to be discovered and explored, and they help us heal.

Let's take a peek at the dreams buried deep in your heart through the 11 dreamy spaces created by contemporary artists.

Participating Artists:
Joey Leung, Leung Mee-ping, Kingsley Ng, Ordinary Cavemen, So Yan-kei, Tam Wai-ping, Sara Tse, Wong Chi-yung, Adrian Wong, Kacey Wong, Samson Young
