The reconsideration of the complex relationship between the conscious and unconscious, between the visible outside world and the invisible inner mental spaces is the main topic of Kata Mijatović,s artistic preocupation. The starting point always is the dichotomy between two psychic spaces, the conscious and unconscious, their interaction and the possibility or impossibility of their mutual communication. A particular segment within the framework of these research consists of works / projects with dreams, where the dreams are a basic structural template and motivating content. Dealing with the dream phenomenon, these works problematize the perception of reality in relations conscious-unconscious, and explore the function of the unconscious in the construction of reality.
