Milk of Dreams

This image comes from an exhibition entitled “The Milk of Dreams” curated by Cecilia Alemani and shown at La Biennale di Venezia from April through November 2022. On the website, the description includes a series of inquiries that informed the creation of this exhibit. They include questions about the nature of human existence, how bodies are connected to the earth, and how definitions of what it means to be human are changing in the context of anthropogenic climate change and human technological innovation. The image included here depicts a series of questions that aim to inspire reflection on some of these deep existential questions, including “What are we? Transient beings threatened and threatening! Aggressors and Victims.”
