For 4 Prepared Dreams, Crossing the Line festival commissioned Joris Lacoste to create four scripted dreams for four New York-based artists, who experienced them throughout a one-on-one hypnosis session with the artist. The artwork is the dream experienced during the session, in which the invited spectator surrenders to the fiction Joris Lacoste presents him with. Each session is followed by a post-hypnotic discussion – open to the public – between Lacoste and his guest.
