Waking Dream comprises significant works by artists including Marina Abramović, as well as works by a number of San Antonio-based artists. Mirroring the interests and character of Pace herself, Waking Dream underscores several themes reflected in the Linda Pace Foundation Collection, including the creative self, notions of home, vulnerability and resilience.
The eastern gallery features art works that reflect ideas of home and the everyday. Unexpected materials, distortions, and shifts in scale transform familiar images into gently surreal objects. Marina Abramović’s Chair for Man and His Spirit (1993), features a typical chair coupled with a towering perch for a “spirit,” playing with scale to a fantastic effect.
