“Paradox” departs from the artist’s research about dream and its relation to the body. How the conscience and the unconsciousness take over the body in turn, like two separate entities that create a whole being. A person lives in their consciousness, but only in the unconscious, everything that is in you – memories, wounds, ambitions, unfinished things – is unearthed. Pane believes dreams act as a driving force between the two, a pull that shakes and creates tension in the body.
Maharani Pane plays with this paradox and offers new possibilities of disciplinary work, using technology as a cross-media platform to break the boundaries of reality and dreams.
