Sleep-in

Collaborative Event with Jesse Darling at the Ghost Sanatorium

Wednesday 11 May 2011, 8-9pm

The St Philips building is not a white cube: instead the building itself sets the parameters and poses the question. Ghost Sanatorium was conceived as a response to a space to invite a response from the viewer. I have been recently influenced by dream sharing practices and the idea of carving out a space in sleep; here I wanted to offer repose, a pause in which to contemplate the history of a space and a century.

Working together with a herbalist, I developed a “ghost sleep” tea – a historically [in]accurate herbal blend of relaxants and mild hypnotics – which will be served to participants during the performance.
