The artist duo YiiMa’Art Group represents Macao’s Official Collateral Event at the 59th Venice Biennale. Conceived and developed as an “Allegory of Dreams”, the exhibition is divided into four sections, namely “Boat of Dreamers”, “Symbols of Dreams”, “Space of Dreams” and “Iao Hon Dynasty”, creating a bridge between dreams and reality, performance art and documentation; presenting the many challenges faced by today’s cultural environment through allegory, and eliciting a deep reflection upon local culture on different aspects.

Through the documentation of their continuous on-site performance art, the exhibition reveals the richness and density of some hidden corners of Macao and lead visitors into the city’s unique cultural environment full of memories and history by means of “dreams”, offering them an opportunity to experience its dreamlike yet allegorical scenes of daily life through the visual impact presented in the works and to gain an understanding and interpretation of the city from multiple angles.
