Ever wondered what happens when your mind is on the verge of wakefulness and sleep? It appears that our consciousness is doing very unusual things at this state. The Morbid Anatomy Museum holds the whole exhibition celebrating the hypnagogia—that special, kind of hypnotic state, in which you can experience hallucinations or lucid dreaming.

“Opus Hypnagogia” represents some really overwhelming art created by different artists. There are works of Charles Dellschau, William Mortensen, A. Fiorello, William Blayney, and many others. What do these works have in common is the unusual kind of mind in which they were created. All of the represented arts were created while steeping in slumber or experiencing the same feeling.

The visit to this exhibition is going to be a definitely breathtaking event. You’ll see extremely curious paintings, photographs, books and other forms of art. “Opus Hypnagogia: Sacred Spaces of the Visionary and Vernacular” without doubt will leave mind-blowing impressions.
