The construction of the jungle for the exhibition Dreaming Awake is in full progress. Over 80 big great exotic trees and plants, coming from all over the country, arrived this morning at Capucijnenstraat in Maastricht.

The plants and trees are currently being planted in Marres, under the watchful eye of curator Luiza Mello and artist Luiz Zerbini. They came all the way from Brazil to be present during the construction.

On March 9, the exhibition Dreaming Awake will be opened by the Ambassador of Brazil H.E. Regina Maria Cordeiro and the mayor of Maastricht Annemarie Penn-te Strake.

A publication with the same title will also appear with the exhibition. The publication contains essays by, among others, Eduardo Kohn, Bruno Latour and Eduardo Viveiros de Castro.
