Press Release: “For a character that only appears in five of the 20 scenes in Hamlet, Ophelia has garnered a great deal of attention from analysts, critics, artists, actresses, fiction writers, psychologists, and adolescent girls alike. Readers are consistently struck by her character that seems relatively insignificant in the grand scheme of things. Ophelia is many times viewed as only important in relation to Hamlet and the effect she has on him. Ophelia is not just important in this respect, but also in respect to what she tells us about the society she came out of and the society we live in today. First analyzing Shakespeare and his precursors then concentrating on the modern day prominence of Ophelia with an overview of feminist criticism and current applications of her story will show that Ophelia is indeed a character with many faces, both positive and negative. Ophelia is one of the most interpreted and represented characters of Shakespeare. She garners constant attention from critics and re-visionists as well as people who identify with her just as Shakespeare wrote her. Depending on who directs the play or the movie, the interpretation will be different. Depending on the artist, the rendering may have a positive connotation or a negative connotation. Ophelia may have been a relatively one-dimensional character, but she has certainly become much more than a girl suffering… The fact that so many people do have knowledge of Ophelia is a testament to her immortality. From a nameless maiden, to a pair of erect nipples on canvas, Ophelia has transversed time in a way few characters have.”

"In the Oxford dictionary Dreams are defined as: a series of thoughts, images, and sensations occurring in a person’s mind during sleep.

Although dreams have been a topic of scientific speculation, as well as a subject of philosophical and psychological interest during all ages of history, their content and purpose are yet not definitively understood. In modern times, dreams have been seen as a connection to the unconscious mind and the emotional, but every single culture on Earth, during all ages of history, has develop it’s own relation with them, assigning them different roles and powers.
And still they make us wonder.
And still they are able to unsettle us.
And still they are able to surprise us.
And still they are able to move us.
Dreams can have varying natures: frightening, exciting, magical, melancholic, adventurous, erotical and often a mixture of all this. Seeing their they volatile and mystical nature, it seems quite natural that dreams are a huge source of inspiration for artists. So we invited 15 artists, coming from various disciplines, as video, photography, painting, installation, and music, to present artworks strictly related to their dreams, considering all of their type: good dreams, nightmares and even lucid dreaming. The aim is to explore the various images and emotions that a dream presents and evokes, while not attempting to come up with a single unique dream view: each person has his or her own dream language. A voyeuristic journey in somebody else’s imaginative subconscious."
