kim? Contemporary Art Centre is pleased to present the Italian artist Eva Frapiccini’s travelling projectDreams’ Time Capsule. You are invited to step inside the mobile work of public art, where the spatial dimension creates an intimate room for collecting oneiric testimonies away from the crowds. Investigating the relationship between art, design and collective memory, as well as the practitioners’ outlooks and approaches, the project builds a sound archive of participants’ dreams to be analyzed by the artist and a team of researchers only in five years’ time. Travelling the globe with many stops on each continent, theDreams’ Time Capsule inflatable audio-recording station is installed for a two day session in Spīķeri for theWhite Night festival on September 7th, and will also be open on September 8th for a more personal experience.
Dreams’ Time Capsule, by visual artist Eva Frapiccini, is a research and a participatory project attempting to create a source to understand how the archetypes surfacing in dreams, through different religions, traditions, or geographical areas. The project started from the Jungian concept of Collective Unconscious as a universal primordial system of images and ideas. Creating and involving a network of art institutions and research groups at the international level, the project takes shape through two different modes.
The first step of the project consists in the collection of dreams, during a series of events where the visitors are invited to record inside an inflatable structure, ideated by the artist and designed in collaboration with Michele Tavano to travel easily in a luggage, around the continents.
The formula of a pop-up exhibition where the time machine, Time Capsule in fact, travels to be installed in public spaces in cities around the world, always free of charge for the visitors. The Project has been hosted in Turin, Cairo, Stockholm, Fittja and Bogota, after the stop in Riga is headed to Umea.
Eva Frapiccini lives and works in Turin and everywhere her projects bring her. She earned her BA and MA in Art History from the University of Bologna, and a BA in Photography at Turin’s IED.
