We dream of mountains. We want to conquer them, reach the summit and be the kings of the world. But as we climb them, we understand the infinitesimality of our own size and their indifference to us. Walking through the crevices, valleys, and ledges high up in the mountain range, the ragged landscape brings us further into its realm and further away from our own world. The vista beneath us becomes but a fleeting dream from which not even the slightest of sounds can be heard.

The interface between day and night accompanies us throughout our lives. Encountering an image often evokes a physical reaction in us, which is a manifestation of the artist's point of view. Adopting the perspective of the artist's point of view is then a task for curators and art perceivers. Image can thus help us to model the world when even the gallery space becomes an image. We understand the theme of Dream on as presenting a dreamscape that opens up in the time between day and night, or becoming present, when we can fully experience a given moment and place and opening to the inner worlds.

Passing on a tradition from generation to generation is like a thread that tells personal stories. We can understand the thread as a carrier of hidden traditions, family roots and signs of our identity. The drawing can also be easily guided by the thread on the fabric, thus following the trail of cultural memory. Embroidery also involves a whole range of aspects. Embroidery allows us to highlight the narration of women's stories, led by women, about their invisible and often overlooked work and national identity from a female perspective. In the works of the Turkish artist Gözde Ju, an interest in cultural memory anchored in time and space intertwines. Gözde Ju touches on socio-cultural roots. Her work is literally interwoven with an interest in family archives, memory and belonging.

The exhibition was created in cooperation with Ausstellungsraum EULENGASSE in Frankfurt am Main.
