Dream Auction as part of the exhibition 'In Dreams We Gather' by Bongsu Park.

In collaboration with The Tavistock Institute and with the support of Arts Council Korea, gallery rosenfeld is pleased to present the Dream Auction by artist Bongsu Park.


Korean Dream Culture in Korea, discussing dreams and interpreting their meaning amongst friends and family is a popular way of identifying symbols that can shed light on events in a person’s future. Often, dreams containing particularly desirable elements are informally “sold”, transferring energy or a state of mind from one close connection to another. People who have had good dreams for example, such as one involving a pig which traditionally alludes to the arrival of wealth, can actually sell their dream to someone else.

This project emerged as we were working with our night dreams in one of the Social Dreaming Matrixes which was part of the Deepening Creative Practice with organisations programme offered by the Tavistock Institute, during its 2020-2021 cohort.

The project began with a unique series of Social Dreaming Matrices (SDMs) in collaboration with the artist Bongsu Park, who brought a South Korean understanding of dreams into the Tavistock Institute’s Social Dreaming (as developed by practitioners of Group Relations).

The shared dreams will be presented as an artwork ‘Dream Ecologies – Patterning Social Dreaming Matrix’ at the upcoming exhibition 'In Dreams We Gather' at gallery rosenfeld. The artwork will be part of the Dream Auction, alongside a series of Dream Scrolls representing individual dreams.

On Friday 19th November, The Tavistock Institute will hold a Symposium where attendants will share their learning and reflection about the experience including conversations, reflections and presentations from the collaborators.
