APAD’s guest for the next two week will be Charalampos Kydonakis. The first week is dedicated to his project My dreams your nightmare.

“We come from a dark abyss, we end in a dark abyss, and we call the luminous interval life. As soon as we are born the return begins, at once the setting forth and the coming back; we die in every moment.” (Askitiki, Nikos Kazantzakis)
When I visited the Prado museum in Madrid, the sector that impressed me most was the hall with Fransisco Goya’s “Pintura Negra”. Was this work a result of the of the painter’s late years’ mental disorder as many critics mention or was there something else going on? I’ll never find out, but I also don’t care to find out: these images are my prayer to Goya’s nightmares.
