A dream sequence is a technique used in storytelling, particularly on screen, to set apart a brief interlude from the main story. The interlude may consist of a flashback, a flashforward, a fantasy, a vision, a dream, or some other element.

Playing on the filmic storytelling technique, this exhibition makes reference to theatre, cinema, surrealism, the familiar and unknown to explore slippages between reality and fantasy within spaces where these distinctions remain ambiguous: Thresholds and comprehension of dreams, to explore suspension between time and place, being and belonging, form and presentation, figuration and abstraction, the internal and external.

This exhibition aims to capture the potency and poetry in fragmented states of meaning and understanding through equivocal visual dialogs represented through personal and collective memory, gesture, intimacy and immediacy.



Mirrored in the Moon presents a fragmented landscape that loops around a double sided screen. Both inside and outside spaces and places depict an internalised world, or an externalised world reflected.
