The Librarian’s Lucid Dream


Experimenter Gallery, Kolkata (2010)

Books have lost their titles, and the titles have gone astray, create dalliances with each others’ words. The Librarian’s Lucid Dream is a wallpaper carnival of impossible books made up of the index card entries for an imaginary library. 

In each instance, the uncanny, nagging sensation that says ‘this must be unreal’ in the face of a dream – even the one that takes place in the foggiest of minds – constitutes the ongoing conspiracy between the need to doubt and the urge to stay real.
