"There exists for each one of us a house of dream-memory
that is lost in the shadow of the past.
...thanks to the house, a great many of our memories are housed, and
if the house has nooks and corridors, our memories have refuges...
All our lives we come back to them in our daydreams." - Gaston Bachelard
The Archive of Daydreams is located inside my studio. It contains an ever-growing number of structures, each one a reconstructed memory of a domestic space. Made out of found materials, these interiors are moulded by real and fictional memories of rooms. Their shape is determined by the way they are remembered; the joy and horrors that have happened within their walls; the stories that are weaved in their corners. The rooms may not exist anymore but we remember them in the way we used to dream in them.
The Archive of Daydreams opened to the public by appointment between 7 March and 18 April 2022.
