Irena Knezevic

Chamber installation

"A two-part installation compositing 19th century phantasmagoric display and contemporary signifiers of horror. The title alludes to the term for the moment before waking, when imagination confuses the vivid dream state for reality. The fantasy and dream narratives mesh, their rules and permeability overlap and nightmares come to life. The work, conceived in 2008, has been installed for the first time in this winter."
