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.

The Dreams’ Time Capsule project was hosted at the Castello di Rivoli Museo d’Arte Contemporanea, in Rivoli, from June to September 2014.
Eva Frapiccini was invited to participate in the group exhibition Ritratto dell’ Artista da Giovane | Portrait of the artist as Young (Wo)man, curated by Marcella Beccaria. The exhibitions explored the remarkable development of contemporary art in Italy over the last 10 years, including 25 artists, from the latest generations promoted by the Museum thanks to the generous contribution of the Castello’s friends. In the same exhibition, there was a selection of the work in progress Dream Diary, in which Frapiccini uses some of the dreams of the Dreams Tim Capsule project’s audio archive.
