Idea Books (Rest of the world)It was back in 2013 when Itziar Okariz (1965, Donostia–San Sebastian) exhibited Diary of Dreams for the first time. In its original iteration, the artist’s daily recollection of dreams took on the form of a cumulative pile of notes. Eventually, Okariz presented these notes as a vocal performance in which she multiplied the phrases, read the words repeatedly, and even inverted their syntax. The oral deconstruction of the narrative resulted in a fourth rendering of the dreams: the transcription of the performative reading into a book.
