Božena’s Dream / Wipers video is inspired by the text of the dream published in Selected Dreams – a collection of recorded dreams written by my friends and acquaintances, which I have been accumulating from 2001 onwards. The process of recalling of dreams in the video was used both as the content and the structural framework, similarly as in the series of works that primarily dealt with the relationship between the conscious and the unconscious or the translation of the subconscious into the conscious.
Božena’s Dream / Wipers is based on the dream by the Croatian artist Božena Končić Badurina focused on the experience of dying and thoughts of death. The video is recorded in a static frame from the inside of a car, focusing on the wipers removing the watercascading down the windshield. The text of Božena’s dream appears repeatedly only to disappear completely by the end of the video. Video footage functions as a membrane on which the text of the dream is written and therefore it becomes essential to the meaning of the work.
