Long Live Freedom

Claudia Abdelghafar

Curadoria de Francisco Lacerda

Most people imagine they just discovered how to get hold of a freedom they have not. Still, the main reason why they cherish their discovery is because they assume they will truly never be free. But there are some other people who know just how much dreams matter, hence every now and then they can enjoy complete freedom. They can hold hands with those they love and start walking, then start running, and then quite soon they will be flying, in need of nothing else.

In the world’s fairy tales, we often come into a life-changing moment where the hero has to choose between four horses in order to fight against the Powers of Evil.   One of those horses is as fast as time. The next is as fast as the wind. The next is as fast as our thoughts. The next is as fast as our dreams. The hero has no trouble picking up the last one, since it is the only horse running at a speed we cannot even see, and only what’s invisible to us is able to be, for sure, at any given time, faster than we are. It was out of those horses, galloping as they do over imaginary maps, that humankind was born.

They say only children can dream, but it is not true since these heroes remained ageless everywhere. We can dream whenever we want to be free, since it is also not true that only children enjoy freedom. All we have to do is to go get the horse that races but for us. And to leave again.
