'If a little dreaming is dangerous, the cure for it is not to dream less but to dream more, to dream all the time.' Marcel Proust


Dreamers are always enthusiastic to share their dreams, but in all cases the dreamer is the auteur/audience and the dream-screening takes place in a vacuum. The artists in this show are all are concerned with working to reconstruct the world from a personalised interpretation of scenes and sources, which may then be universally processed. Their influences are many and varied from the Primitive, the Sublime, German Romanticism, Dada, Surrealism, popular culture, experience and memory. The paradox of 'I Had Too Much to Dream Last Night' is that it is not sleep, but dreams that are necessary for our wellbeing. Dreams allow us to go safely and quietly insane for a time each day. Each time we fall asleep, there is the opening of a new show. WW launches with a group exhibition featuring works by 8 artists: Ben Sadler, Eva Lis, Monooka, Sonke Faltien, Anita Makris, Irlanda Zantone, Boa Swindler, Chiara Williams.
