Endless Dreams and Water Between

January 21 – March 26, 2022


Renée Green


Endless Dreams and Water Between (2009) is a feature film with four fictitious characters sustaining an epistolary exchange in which their “planetary thought” is woven with the physical locations they inhabit, visual and aural characters in themselves: the island of Manhattan, the island of Majorca, in Spain, and the islands and peninsula that form the San Francisco Bay Area. The characters’ reflections and dreams enact what could be described as “an archipelagic mind,” linking worlds, time, and space.


Renée Green is an artist, writer, and filmmaker known for her highly layered and formally complex multimedia installations in which ideas, perception, and experience are examined from myriad perspectives.

Via films, essays and writings, installations, digital media, architecture, sound-related works, film series and events, her work engages with explorations into circuits of relation and exchange over time, the gaps and shifts in what survives in public and private memories, as well as what has been imagined and invented.

Her exhibitions, videos and films have been seen throughout the world in museums and art institutions, biennials and festivals. A selection of these would include the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; National Maritime Museum, Greenwich, UK; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; Museum Ludwig, Cologne; Fundació Antoni Tàpies, Barcelona; Vienna Secession; as well as in Documenta, the Whitney Biennial, and the Venice Biennale.
