Dreams as Source Material for an Artistic Process

Abstract [en]

In this essay, I document and reflect on a process of creating a twenty-minute performance called That Time I Swam in a Storage Room (2021), with dreams as its source material. The essay is written in the form of a series of log-book-like entries, which offer an insight into how the work developed throughout each week during the nine-week working period. The process described in this essay, is centred around individual explorations, through reading and try-outs, as well as studio-sessions together with a four-person working group consisting of Ane Carlsen, Anton Hedevang, Jane Sievänen and Heta Asikainen. In the essay, I give an account of how the explorations are executed; by using tools and methods derived from Dadaists and Surrealist art movements, such as the cut-up technique and automatic writing. Fragments of methods from other thinkers and psychoanalysts are also applied in order to harvest dream-images and further work with the content of the dreams, such as Sigmund Freud’s dream interpretation and Carl Jung’s active imagination. The essay ends with reflections on the process of creating the performance.
