JOHN GRAHAM: Museum of Dreams

Main Gallery

In this multi-media installation, John Graham – a nationally and internationally renowned visual artist, filmmaker, architect, and a Professor of Art at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon – presents an imaginary museum collection of objects from his own dreams. 30 sculptures have been assembled into a bizarre collection of oddities, hybrid protagonists, magical lyricism and ambiguous storytelling. Conceived as a poetic laboratory, this project interrelates metaphorical visualizations from both the consciousness and subconscious realms. Each piece in this exhibition evolved into being like a dream. Each presents surreal symbolic messaging from inner worlds. Each is individually imbued with an enigmatic narrative. Each embodies its own strange inner logic. All of these qualities are intended to resonate with the authentic self.  The experience of this ensemble is not intended to appease the conscious mind, but to challenge it. Like Surrealists, this installation embodies unpredictable juxtapositions and symbolic narratives that shape themselves around varying psychological tone.
