Tilda Swinton’s Performance at MoMA

24.1n014.Tilda1--300x300 The Scottish actress Tilda Swinton participates in a performance at MoMA (Museum of Modern Art). She actually sleeps all day long in a glass box. She only has a mattress, pillow, a jug of water and her glasses in the box. The actress started her performance yesterday and she snoozed while people were watching her. “I think because I know more about art I’m not that interested. But maybe it’s good she’s using her celebrity to make people think,” said Gaby Shorr, a visitor who works for an art appraiser. Another visitor who watched the performance said: “I feel bad for her. It’s physically demanding. Is she just nocturnal for a month?”

The time and place of her public slumber will change.  “Those who find it chance upon it for themselves, live and in real — shared — time: Now we see it, now we don’t,” said in MoMA’s statement. 24.1n014.Tilda3--300x300
