You are strongly encouraged to come along to this discussion on dreams and dreaming, to be introduced to Bongsu Park’s Dream Auction project and to explore the broader contexts of dream culture:
Dream and Dreaming – their place in our lives
Small discussion about DREAM AUCTION | DREAM RITUAL project and dream writing workshop with Bongsu Park and Hazel Riley. This is an Open Platform event, hosted by the Reading Room at Wellcome Collection.
Bongsu Park is a London-based Korean artist. Her recent work is founded on how our innermost thoughts may connect with other people’s and how these can be shared publicly. She studied at the Slade School of Fine Arts, UK and at l’Ecole des Beaux-Arts de Bordeaux, France. She has exhibited internationally including Zona Maco-Sample, FIAC-cinéphémère, The Moving Image Istanbul, Barcelona LOOP, Gyungnam Art Museum in Changwon, South Korea and her performance work showed at Camden Arts Centre, Rosenfeld Porcini gallery and the Print Room Coronet Theatre in London. Her work finds its roots in the philosophy of her homeland South Korea and brings this into the context of contemporary western societies.
Hazel Riley is an author, teacher and shamanic practitioner. She was the first to enter the labyrinth in Bongsu Park’s Internal Library project, drawn by her life long interest in myth, dreams and writing. Hazel has published two novels for young adults, Thanis (2000) and The Crying (2002). Born in Gateshead, she has lived in London for over forty years. She is currently teaching Art History on an Access to Higher Education Diploma at Kensington & Chelsea College. She has taught modules on healing, ritual and art to anthropology students. She is very interested in dance, especially companies and artists who explore the ritual, ancestral and sacred aspects of dance. Hazel has been keeping dream journals for over thirty years.
