Drömfabrik/Traumfabrik, Bageriet, Konstepedemin Gothenburg, Sweden

A collaboration and a work in progress by the artists Carina Fihn, Göteborg and Hildegard Skowasch, Berlin.
A project on the irrational, the subconscious and night dreams. With psychoanalysis, philosophy, myths and science as inspirational sources and with a starting point in their own written dreams the artists relate freely to language, interpretation, translation and visualization.
The first part of Dream Factory was shown at The Bakery, a show room for experiments and growing projects at Konstepidemin in Gothenburg, 12-17 April 2016.
The project contained of a dream collection "The brain is wider than the sky – Hypnagogia Bank", a big cloud of branches (markvast), a Freudian coach, small drawings and objects, shadows and two typewriters.
The audience were asked to contribute to the dream bank with their dreams and in return get a small multiple signed by the artists.
At two occasions the artists made a reading performance, in Swedish and German, from the dream notes of surrealist artist Meret Oppenheim. An experiment with sleeping in the gallery during a cold night resulted in bad sleep and not much of dreaming.

Priority, Galleri Sagoy, Malmö, Sweden

Hildegard Skowasch and Désirée Burenstrand met in Berlin 2011 when Désirée was a guest artist at Atelierhaus Mengerzeile. When Désirée moved to Malmö 2012, a dialogue in drawings started between the artists. Hildegard sent Désirée a drawing by post. Désirée responded to the drawing by creating a new one, which was sent to Hildegard for response, and so the exchange has started. In this form the correspondence has continued. A selection of drawings from the dialogue is now exhibited. The drawings are in various techniques and the subjects are influenced by the artists everyday life and imagery. The exhibition Priority is characterzed by a variety of humour and severity, besides seriousness and elements of sounds.
