Sequences VI – Off Venue
Sunday AprilÂ 13, Â
In the performance Sleeping beauty by Inga Jautakyte, the audience is invited to re-look into the action of sleep, a part of the daily practice of every human being, by positioning herself into this personal act in the public sphere of the exhibition room. Unlike any of our other daily activities, sleep is the one practice we are conditioned and subjected to involuntarily. To fulfill this action Inga will prepare with a lack of sleep and exercises to push challenge the will and circumstances of sleep. Inga will be Sleeping Beauty at the main exhibition room at SkaftfellÂ´s exhibition space on Sunday the 14th of April from 15.00 until she wakes up – or 22.00.
The event is a part of Sequences VI – Off Venue, www.sequences.is
