DTC project in Cairo / Egypt / Africa

From 1st till 3rd July 2012, the Dreams’ Time Capsule project was hosted by The Townhouse Gallery in Cairo, curated 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, people were invited to enter the inflatable structure between 10 am and 8 pm, to record their oneiric testimony: either a whole night time dream or a particularly strong image that had remained in their minds.

In so doing, about 90 testimonies (in Egyptian, English and others languages) have been collected and included in the audio archive: voices that will be preserved and given back to the donors in 2021, after 10 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 curators and organisers involved in the program.
