Theme 2023: “Beyond the veil of reality”

Is the representation of the world that our minds project real and  objective – or is it a construction of our (collective or individual)  unconscious? When we create art, we may be deconstructing, filtering and recomposing  the components according to our personal temperament or ideology.  Similarly we reveal the unconscious form simply by fleshing out a  thought, feeling or dream. “First I dream my paintings, then I paint my dreams”: Vincent Van Gogh. The same inspiration that artists so often seek may be the fruit of the  unconscious impulse to which we must give ourselves over completely in  order to get the work done. The word Inspiration comes from the Latin word for inhalation, to  breathe in; however, in ancient Greek culture, the breath of an external  Muse evokes a poetic ecstasy. Meanwhile, for Jung, inspiration always  means an archetypal contact with the unconscious. We could therefore say that every creation , however realistic, contains  a mysterious component from a parallel universe; something that has  necessarily passed through a state of unconsciousness before becoming  objective. “Beyond the veil of reality” is not exclusively an artistic subject to  be worked on, it is rather an invitation to let go ( why not?): – To dare without fear, making that part of us speak that would like to express itself but does not, – to be surprised by an artistic inspiration which is none other than the voice of our unconscious – wanting to  convey an emotion, a feeling, a thought, real or illusory, that somehow  belongs to us because it contains a part of us.
