Dreams’ Time Capsule in Sharjah, UAE

The Dreams’ Time Capsule project was invited by the Maraya Art Centre to be installed at the Al Qasba area and the Al Majaz park in Sharjah in the UAE. The four-day-long event was curated by Alexandra MacGilp. As in the other locations, visitors stepped into the installation to share one of their own dreams. In total, from 22nd to 24th March and on 27th March, about 150 participants have participated in the project. In so doing, they contributed to expanding the audio archive (to date about 1470 dreams’ descriptions).
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.

Dreams’ Time Capsule in Riga, Latvia

The Dreams’ Time Capsule project took place during the White Night Festival in Riga, on September 7th and 8th 2013 and it was open from 2pm to 3am on the 7th and then for the whole day on the 8th. The participatory event was produced by the kim? Contemporary Art Center and curated by Zane Onckule.

More than 260 people recorded their dreams at the festival (Dream is Sapne in Latvian). Dream encounters were recorded in Latvian, Russian, German, Chinese and English. We wish to thank all the volunteers who engaged in the process-based survey. Without their help during the days (and night), we could not have engaged with the audience, answered questions or gathered all of the data that we did. We would like to thank all of the dreamers that patiently waited in the queue to contribute their dreams, and the supportive staff of kim?, especially Zane Onckule and Laima Ruduša.

We are really glad for this successful stage of the project despite of the short time, the archive has engrossed of about 300 dream encounters, which will be sent back in 2021-22. Looking forward to having dreamers feedbacks to delivering phase!

DTC project in Cairo, Egypt

From 1st till 3rd July 2012, the Dreams’ Time Capsule project was hosted by The Townhouse Gallery in Cairo, curated by Alexandra Stock and Ania Szremski. Eva Frapiccini was artist-in-residence, under the support of the residency exchange program Resò (promoted by Crt Foundation and Piedmont Region), 2012.

Each day between 10 am and 8 pm, people were invited to enter the inflatable structure, to record their oneiric testimony: either a whole night time dream or a dream they do not understand.

In so doing, about 90 testimonies (in Egyptian, English and others languages) were collected and included in the audio archive: voices that will be preserved and given back to the donors in 2021, ten years from the beginning of the project.

Thanks to Mina Nosky, Dina Sfakaki, Alexandra Stock, Ania Szremski 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 thank also the Resò program team and all the institutions involved in the program: the Albertina Academy of Fine Art in Turin; Castello di Rivoli Museum of Contemporary Art; CESAC Centro Sperimentale per le Arti Contemporanee; Eco e Narciso; the Gai – Association for the Circuit of Young Italian Artists; Cittadellarte – Fondazione Pistoletto; Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo; PAV – Parco Arte Vivente; Spinola Banna Art Foundation
