This event has ended.

Dream Bird, Hatching the Egg is an immersive installation of soft sculptures drawn from Walter Benjamin’s essay The Storyteller, where Benjamin describes boredom as a necessary part of creating. “This process of assimilation, which takes place in depth, requires a state of relaxation, which is becoming rarer and rarer. If sleep is the apogee of physical relaxation, boredom is the apogee of mental relaxation. Boredom is the dream bird that hatches the egg of experience.” The dream bird evokes the boundless experience possible beyond the irritation commonly associated with boredom.
