Zoom Out; Dream Diary. Itziar Okariz


Zoom out; dream diary consists in the fragmented reading aloud of a text, an extract from a dream diary that the artist will be keeping during the period of the exhibition. Repetitively, in each reading of the diary, the last word of the text is added to by the previous one, so that the text (referring to the day’s dream) is finally accumulated in its entirety.

Zoom out; dream diary will take place in the AlhóndigaBilbao exhibition space. The performance is part of the programme of activities for EL CONTRATO, a collaborative project between Bulegoa z/b and AlhóndigaBilbao running between 2 October 2014 and 11 January 2015.
