“UNSPEAKABLE DREAMS, SMOTHERING DESIRES” opened on November 12, 2022 at Building Bridges Art Exchange at Bergamot Station. The solo exhibition by Carmen Mardonez is curated by Marisa Caichiolo and will run through January 2023.

As Austrian neurologist Sigmund Freud once said: “The interpretation of dreams is the royal road to a knowledge of the unconscious activities of the mind.” This statement alone could very well capture the essence of Chilean artist Carmen Mardonez’s body of work, particularly of her latest exhibition “Unspeakable Dreams, Smothering Desires,” which will usher art lovers into a dream-like world of healing through a stunning art installation featuring 30 recycled bed sheets and over 50 used pillow covers.

On view: November 2022 – January 2023
