‘Dreaming Awake’ is part of a series of exhibitions at Marres, Maastricht, in which the building is used to show an all-encompassing single work of art. The project was developed by Brazilian curator Luiza Mello and Marres director Valentijn Byvanck, in collaboration with artists Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Daniel Steegmann Mangrané, and Luiz Zerbini. The exhibition presents a tropical rainforest peeled back in layers, opening up the connection between the sensory world and the dream – the experience of touch and the hypnotic pressure of an immersive environment. Through texts, interviews, and images, we are encouraged to sense these deeper layers of nature. Published by Marres (Maastricht).
