BENGALURU: Two artists from Finland and Romania will launch an art campaign that aims to make dreams come true, at the Rangoli Metro Art Centre on MG Road on Saturday.
The campaign, titled ‘Plant Your Dream’, is the brainchild of Helena Von Schoultz, a cultural producer from Finland, and Cristina Maiorescu, a visual artist from Romania. Participants will be asked to write down their dreams on a piece of paper, which will then be tied to a “dream tree”.
“This idea grew out of a belief that dreams are just like seeds — for a seed to grow, you have to plant it, and then water and nurture it to see it grow slowly. By writing down the dream, you plant it. And by seeing it and being reminded of it every day, you will slowly take steps, consciously or unconsciously, towards realising that dream,” Helena said.
Cristina said she is curious to find out how the city responds to interactive art. “It is the people who make this installation come alive and how open they are to leave behind a part of themselves and take along a part of us is something we would love to explore. We also hope that our initiative will encourage more participatory art forms in the city and that it will inspire others to come up with similar projects in the future,” she said.
All contributors will be given a plant pot and the “dream tree” will remain at the Art Centre even after the exhibition.
