Dreams’ Time Capsule in Sharjah, UAE

The Dreams’ Time Capsule project has been invited by the Maraya Art Centre to be installed at the Al Qasba area and the Al Majaz park in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates. During the four-days-long event, curated by Alexandra MacGilp, visitors have stepped into the itinerant installation to share one of their own dreams. In so doing, they have contributed to expanding the audio archive (to date about 1470 dreams’ descriptions).
From 22nd to 24th March and on 27th March, about 150 participants have participated in the project. We want to thank all the collaborators: Alicia, Rode, Ruby, Vivien, and Ali. Our best greetings to the director Giuseppe Moscatello and the Maraya Art Centre staff who made it possible. Eva Frapiccini’s residency program in Sharjah was supported  by FARE Milano in partnership with the Maraya Art Centre.

>Manama / Bahrain / The Middle East

On March 2014, the artist Eva Frapiccini was invited to participate in a month-long residency upon the invitation of the American-swiss curator Alexandra Stock and Al Riwaq Art Space in Manama, Bahrain. 

from 3rd to 9th March 2014, The Dreams’ Time Capsule was one of the main projects that were showed during the Festival of Public Art Alwan 338. Foundations, curated by Alexandra Stock. The participative event was installed during 6 days in front to the Al Riwaq Art Space in Manama.

During the opening and the following days, the artist Eva Frapiccini and the volunteers invited the visitors to enter inside the itinerant station in order to record one of their dreams. The visitors participated with more 130 testimonies, giving their enthusiastic feedbacks.

We wish to thank all the Al Riwaq team and the volunteers that were very supportive. Again we would like to thank all the artists and visitors who have lived with us this great experience. Inshallah we’ll see soon.
