The theme of the exhibition will be The Time of The Chimeras
"The milk of dreams", which takes its cue from Eleonora Carrington's book, in which the writer describes a magical world where life is continually reinvented through the imagination, indicates, for the curator of the Biennale Cecilia Alemani, three thematic areas: the representation of bodies and their metamorphoses, the relationship between individuals and technologies and the links that intertwine between bodies and the Earth.
For the crypto exhibition in Cameroon Pavilion, the curator Sandro Orlandi Stagl, to stay in line with the general themes, intended to give value to one of the most significant aspects of artistic creation: the imagination.
The imagination has always been the basis of the myth. So the title "The Time of Chimeras" brings back the mythological animal symbol of illusions, risky fantasies, unrealizable dreams and dystopian visions. In space and over time.
Chasing a Chimera seems crazy but it is the only way to make your impossible dreams come true and artists have the power to challenge this madness and make us dream.
