Plender, Olivia, Orn, Unnar and Gfader, Verina (2009) DREAM READINGS between OLIVIA PLENDER and UNNAR ORN. In: DREAM READINGS between OLIVIA PLENDER and UNNAR ORN, Wednesday 4th November 2009, E:ventGallery, 96 Teesdale Street, London E2 6PU. (Unpublished)

This evening Olivia Plender and Unnar Orn will perform a reading of selected dreams, as part of a project on a “dream exchange” the artists have developed since they met during a residency at FAAP (Fundação Armando Alvares Penteado) Sao Paolo, Brazil. Some materialities and processes of this project will be provided to the audience who will be invited to contribute a dream to their expanding archive.

The project touches on issues of imagination, exchange, and the ir/rational, which is at the core of Olivia and Unnar’s practices. In particular, the “dream exchange” explores a dialogical relation between image and text over time, when the image becomes a source for someone else’s dream – who is forced to note down what has emerged unconsciously over night.
