Moll Brau’s “Sweet Dreams”

At the edge of Moll Brau’s debut solo exhibition with Rusha & Co., Sweet Dreams, lies a bed of nails where Brau once laid to rest. The sculpture was the base of her performance in Austin, Texas, where Brau, the dreamer, attempted to gain a deeper sense of self through the process of spiritual alchemy, a spiritual science inherited from Our Father Adam and passed on through philosophers, wizards, and saints. On seven consecutive nights, she performed a series of tasks symbolic of the seven steps of the alchemical journey before retiring to a meditative state upon her bed of nails. Each night, Brau presented a visitation representative of each step of this transmutative process: Calcination, Dissolution, Separation, Conjunction, Fermentation, Distillation, and Coagulation.
