2010 

 

For this Serpentine gallery event we set up studio in the Jean Nouvel-designed pavilion and produced a book, ‘go to sleep, go to sleep, go to sleep’, in one night.


‘The Serpentine Gallery and the V&A stage a unique overnight event of talks, films, experiments and a midnight feast in the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2010 designed by Jean Nouvel. Artists, architects and musicians amongst others will host activities throughout the night, exploring ideas of mapping sleep and the psychedelic qualities of insomnia. Participants include: ÅBÄKE, Charles Arsène-Henry, Dale Berning, Peter Brook, Bompas & Parr, Karl Burke, Eileen Carpio, Sean Carpio, Lucinda Chua, Céline Condorelli, Stuart Croft, Maya Deren and Alexander Hammid, Heinz Emigholz, Mark Garry, Francesca Grilli, Melissa Gronlund, Emilia Izquierdo, Darian Leader, John Morgan studio, Cesare Pietroiusti, Simon Popper, Laure Prouvost, Alex Rich, Dr Angelica Ronald and Lewis Ronald among others.

The evening will be documented in a hand made book, collated and designed throughout the night by John Morgan studio. The book will be hand crafted and will be delivered to participants in the morning. Content for the newspaper will be gathered in workshops run by the Sleepover’s participants and performers throughout the night.’ (Serpentine Gallery)
