review by Frédéric-Charles Baitinger – A ghost story for adults  – extract
“Just as Alice [of Wonderland] crossed through the ivory gates of her fantasy, Sabrina Montiel-Soto invites us to venture into an enchanting poetic world based on one sole idea: “When we dream, we live twice.” Using objects from our daily life as others play with childhood images, this Venezuelan artist’s works are not at all “ready-made,” but rather true metaphysical stories that call on people to reflect, explore and (re-)discover their meaning.”
