Brīniņa, Kristīne

„I imagine a situation when my body is getting injured, when other people are killed or blown up in front of my eyes, and I get the urge to fall asleep and convince myself that violence can’t reach my sleeping world.” In 24h of Sleep Kristīne Brīniņa explores different states of sleep as a possible refuge from the fear induced by the reality. The visitors are invited to spend 24 minutes in a sleep landscape and collectively imagine the end and the beginning of this micro-world. „Now we will count to twelve and we will all keep still”, Pablo Neruda Keeping Quiet.
