Between dreams and reality; Dreamalities by Julie de Waroquier

Between dreams and reality, I create pictures which look like they escaped from imagination, which disturb the categories of the material world.

Between dreams and reality, I create pictures which look like they escaped from imagination, which disturb the categories of the material world. The better to get back to our world however, with eyes fed by unusual yet familiar visions.

Thus I strive to explore the poetic value of the unconscious: each picture is to be seen as the rapture of a dream that would come true and that would be caught by the camera. I question the world by showing what our society denies, everything that belongs to fiction, poetry and dreams, and that is part and parcel of our reality.

I’m mostly interested in the links between private and public, between internal and external worlds. Dreams are indeed to be understood in a very broad meaning, not only as a night trip: it’s all our imaginary side that builds our connections to the world. We’re not directly related to things and people, we keep on being connected to how we intimately perceive them, and thus to how we dream our life. Dream is consequently our personal relationship to the world, how we perceive or want it to be.

Julie de Waroquier

In other words, there is no reality without imagination because our subjectivity receives and rebuilds everything. And dreaming, somehow, is like rising above our world to see it from another point of view. That is why dreaming can make us free and lucid. At the same time, material reality and its brutality keep on calling us back and remind us that dreaming can be illusory.

Dream and reality can’t exist without each other, and keep on influencing each other. Our connection to the others and to the world depends on this very relationship, and this is what I question in my pictures.
