How do contemporary artist represent our dreams? What links are there between cinematographic illusion, psychoanalytical interpretations of our subconscious and—closer to home—the tradition of Belgian surrealism?
Cinema and art film allow to transcend the border of time and space in complex ways. For decades artist have been using techniques such as collage, mirror effects, tempo changes, blur and repetition to create new realities that take us far beyond the greyness of our everyday world .
The works at Pies in the Skies—all from the Argos collection—detach themselves from worlds that are ruled by logic and structure. The contributions by artists such as Heine Avdal, Charley Case, Messieurs Delmotte, Ken Kobland, Isabelle Nouzha, Jacques-Louis Nyst, Hans Op de Beeck, Nicolas Provost, Krassimir Terziev, take us back—often subconsciously—to early psychological experiments and the roots of cinema.
