The new video work ‘Four Dreams’ continues motifs that began with the film ‘Call for Dreams’ in a similar but different manner. Extended and further fragmented. It is divided into 4 ‘acts’ which are defined as ‘dreams’ which are characterised by different mysterious stories. In the heart of these ’dreams’ lays a poetic reflection on time, horror and the acceptance of mystery, narrated occasionally and intermittently by a child and an adult, that we never see on screen. Both are trying to immerse in, and decipher certain essences in the fabric of reality. The work alludes to cinema but a clear narrative is never established, instead, images, soundtracks and narration overlap to form an immersive cinematic experience that builds up in relation to the viewer watching.
