Thursday 6th of June, 1-6pm
at Art Lab Gnesta
Welcome to Dream Island, it can be anything you want it to be.
We will gather to Art Lab Gnesta to celebrate the launch of a publication Dream Island on 6th of June. Dream Island explores themes of belonging and alienation through its literary and artistic contributors. As a celebration we want to invite everyone to have a first glimpse to the newly produced publication – everyone is welcome!
During the day, performance duo kallio manninen will perform a magical sound and dance based performance. Schedule of the event will be published soon. Light refreshments will be served.
Dream Island, it can be anything you want it to be. From isolation to refuge and recreation, islands are alive with mixed meanings. Similarly, dreams are rife with multiple connotations, think the dark content of a terrifying nightmare or the glittery echo of a sun soaked day dream. Both invoke a realm where societal order is absent, where the subconscious and the irrational run free. Freedom or chaos? Whatever the meanings or connotations, Dream Island is a place to which we can all belong.
