‘Super Nintendo Dreams’

An exhibition and performance event by artist Michael O’Mahony

Ten years ago, London-based artist Michael O’Mahony was invited to a lecture on the use of dream interpretation in psychoanalysis. He became fascinated by the possibility that dreams were not random but contained symbols, which when discussed freely, could lead to catharsis by unearthing buried thoughts and feelings. O’Mahony began to keep track of his dreams through a series of drawings.

Around this time, O’Mahony also started having dreams about the Super Nintendo, a games console that he played as a child. Over the past decade he has recorded over a dozen dreams about the Super Nintendo or associated Nintendo items and characters. In this exhibition O’Mahony displays some of his Nintendo dream diary drawings and will be reflecting on the possible meaning of his dreams through performance using the spoken word and music played through his childhood Super Nintendo.
