>Cairo / Egypt / Africa

From 1st till 3rd July 2012, the DTC’s structure was hosted by The Townhouse Gallery in Cairo, where Eva Frapiccini has been in residence for a previous couple of months as artist selected for the Resò Program 2012.

Between 10 am and 8 pm people were invited to enter the inflatable structure, and took their time to record their oneiric testimony: either a whole night time dream or a particularly strong image that had remained in their minds.

That way, about 90 testimonies (in Egyptian, English and others languages) have been included in the archive: voices that will be preserved and given back to the donors in the audio file in 2016, after 5 years from the begin of the project.

The event in Cairo was curated by Alexandra Stock and Ania Szremski

Many thanks to Mina Nosky, Dina Sfakaki, Alexandra Stock and William Welsh and all the staff of Townhouse Gallery for their invaluable support throughout the Cairo leg of the project!

We would like to thanks also the Resò program team, especially the curator Claudio Cravero. The Resò program is supported by the Piedmont Region and the Crt Foundation.
