‘a dream within a dream’ explores the delicate interplay between reality and fantasy, with the work of the artist unfolding like enigmatic narratives. The exhibition encourages contemplation of that state to uncover the meaning embedded into their work. The artists collectively unveil a world where the boundaries between the tangible and the ephemeral blur, inviting viewers to tread the delicate line that separates the vivid landscapes of imagination from the solid ground of existence.
 
Alya Hatta delves into the nuanced intricacies of the diasporic human condition. Drawing inspiration from her time in South London and Kuala Lumpur, as well as Southeast Asian mythology, she constructs alternate realities that invite viewers into a contemplative space. Sophie Vallance Cantor masterfully blurs the boundaries between the tangible and the imaginary, presenting scenes that read like dreams, where joy and detachment intertwine. Aysha Nagieva’s paintings serve as dreamlike manifestations, transcending the confines of personal experiences. Rafaela de Ascanio celebrates the empowered female figure, drawing inspiration from autobiographical events, fantastical symbols, and literature. Her figures immerse themselves in dreamlike narratives, becoming powerful symbols of strength and autonomy. Candice Dehnavi’s artistic evolution delves into cultural familiarity and the nuances of memory, traversing the dreamlike nature of formative experiential recollection to a physical world of representation.
 
a dream within a dream’  is a celebration of the nuanced beauty that emerges when imagination intertwines with the palpable aspects of existence.
