Perchance to dream

a cura di Daniele Capra




La Galleria Nazionale d’Arte di Tirana è lieta di presentare Perchance to Dream, collettiva dei finalisti della XIX edizione del Premio Onufri. La mostra raccoglie le opere di otto dei più promettenti artisti albanesi della nuova generazione, selezionati dal curatore Daniele Capra.

Which are the interactions between reality and imagination? Why art are at the same time near to mankind perceptions and far from the thoughts of everyday life? Are the artists looking to the world from contradictory points of view, as Hamlet in the soliloquy Shakespeare wrote?

The works exhibited in Perchance to Dream investigate the diametrical conditions of struggling between two approaches: to suffer the “the slings and arrows” of realty, or to fight against it using imagination. Even if art can’t solve problems and give us the right answers, artists are expected to look for the unexpected questions about the conflicts we live in.
