During their residency at Akademirommet, Emma Brack and Vikram Uchida-Khanna will prepare an exhibition which explores boundaries of perception in relation to sleep. Sleep operates dialectically between intimate and public spheres.
One of us has adopted a polyphasic sleep routine along with a practice of yoga-nidra, a meditative yogic method of conscience awareness of the deep sleep state. These are experiments into different perceptive states: as the body becomes conditioned to immediately enter REM sleep, it facilitates a state not unlike that of lucid dreaming.
There will be a public program of workshops during the residency.
Thursday February 20, 16.00-17.30: Yoga-Nidra Workshop with Kéa Ostovany.
Saturday February 22, 15.00-19.00: Opening and Film Screening of Peter Weir’s “The Last Wave” (1977).
