On the show's theme, curator Alexandra Mazzanti shares: “Each one of us was assigned his own journey. We bring into it our family background, carrying in our hearts our family members and the special people we meet, who become deeply rooted in a personal circus we travel with constantly. Each of us has his unfollowed path to go through, his own doors to unlock in order to free his soul, to sail out into the infinite visions coming from his mind. The place we reach is not down any map, as true places never are. It might be the secret garden where the holy blue resides or the glorious land of a still time and memory. By experiencing, dreaming, and discovering we fill our suitcase with ghosts of love and emotions. While losing sight of the shore, we are finally wanderers and we discover ourselves.”

Hikari's painting is featured in the exhibition's hardcover catalogue, "Pages from Mind Travellers Diaries" and is the fifth book released by Dorothy Circus Gallery, presenting an immersive look at London and Rome 10th Anniversary exhibitions, as well as shows curated between 2014-2017. The 116 page book also features special contents and essays by curators Alexandra Mazzanti, Jonathan Levine and Caro Buermann. To order, please contact [email protected].
