Abstract or Description:

Endless Dreams and Water Between is a project by the artist Renée Green, commissioned by the National Maritime Museum. The material cultures of maritime history are intertwined with desires and dreams that are carried across the oceans through experience, representation, misrepresentation and projections of past and present. This exhibition pays attention to the varied ways cultures perceive and conceive of the world. These understandings and perceptions are developed through struggles for happiness, the imaginary, systems for comprehension and dreams, as well as by the pursuit of these very desires. Renée Green has consistently returned to ideas of time and the sea throughout her artistic practice. Endless Dreams and Water Between brings poetics to the ways that islands shape our understanding of our place in the world by taking us on a journey through the Mediterranean Sea, the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.
