Scenes from the House Dream: The Exhibition as Oneiric Scene

84 - 2018

In recent years, the exhibition space has been redefined and reinterpreted by artists who have used it both as a material to work with and as a world to invest with new roles and meanings. For artists such as Parreno, Huyghe, and Golden, this new trend toward breaking through the limits of the artwork, reinventing the format of the retrospective, and revising the artist’s and curator’s roles is based on the immersive experience and the sense of the uncanny to transform the exhibition into an oneiric stage, a space for self-exploration in which the receiver is the co-creator. Scenes from the House Dream, by Canadian artist David Hoffos, is one of these exhibition-artworks, presented as a performative space in which the boundaries between familiar and strange, real and imaginary, artwork and life are blurred as visitors are immersed in the anxiety of a waking dream.
