“Birds Of Paradise’
5th International Art Festival ‘Chania 2007”
From 15 to 22 July
At the Old Customs building at the Venetian harbour of Chania
We are delighted to present, for the fifth consecutive year, the 5th International festival “Chania 2007”.
The first Festival opened just days after the launching of the war in Iraq, an event that shook and alarmed us deeply. In response, we dedicated that Festival to the cause of peace, which we have continued to do each succeeding year.
This year, over five years later, as the slaughter in Iraq and elsewhere rages on, and as peaceful coexistence between peoples of different cultures becomes increasingly threatened, there is an ever greater need for events and institutions that unite different peoples and promote tolerance and mutual respect and appreciation. Art undoubtedly brings people together, and both provokes serious thought and brings beauty into our lives. Wherever people live, they have the same concerns, the same problems, they feel the same pains and joys.
Through the creations of artists, these emotions take on material form.
In this Festival 36 artists from 16 countries, take part. Beyond the social or political significance of such events, there is also the more purely artistic aspect. We believe that the Chania International Art Festival has become established as an event that presents noteworthy and fresh work of both new and well-known artists from all over the world, presenting the latest tendencies in an extremely wide range of genres, styles and media. In a way, it is a portrait of the visual arts at this moment.
We hope that the visitors to the Festival will gain as much pleasure from these works as we did.

This exhibition has as central objective to analyze to the dream and the state of subconscious with a particular attention to the interpretation of the dream that transforms in radical measure our life, sliding of the time, the movements and the perspectives of the conscience. In order to bring to light the plan we ‘ve invited artists from the south to the north of the world that operates in diversified way ready to recently describe to characters and situations deriving from a realized dream and that it represents more them. All this for being able to institute tipologie, and to allow to the art pubblic a distinction between dream and vision, true dream and dream to eyes just opened, in order to define, thematic and style variable constants. A first result of the search is legacy to the narration of the phenomenon legacy to the sleep and in particular to phase REM, characterized from a sensory experience of images and apparently real sounds. In the second place it has been elaborated a theory of the narrated dream.
