Cristina Ohlmer – SHANGHAI DREAM, 10.40, 2014


In old times it was possible to escape the fate that brings bad dreams into your life when you draw the fabulous animal BAKU on your pillow or the wall, or you must shout: BAKU CHI, eat the dream up. This is the Shanghai dream. The dream is of Shanghai changing May into June, July into August and heat into rain until autumn comes in September. Baku is part of the Shanghai dream I am looking for and must draw on my pillow to appear: Baku is an animal of yellow-green colour and shaped like a bear, with a nose like an elephant, eyes like wolf or rhinoceros, a tail like a cow and feet like a tiger.
