DTC project in Cairo, Egypt

From 1st till 3rd July 2012, the Dreams’ Time Capsule project was hosted by The Townhouse Gallery in Cairo, curated by 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 between 10 am and 8 pm, people were invited to enter the inflatable structure, to record their oneiric testimony: either a whole night time dream or a dream they do not understand.

In so doing, about 90 testimonies (in Egyptian, English and others languages) were collected and included in the audio archive: voices that will be preserved and given back to the donors in 2021, ten 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 institutions involved in the program: the Albertina Academy of Fine Art in Turin; Castello di Rivoli Museum of Contemporary Art; CESAC Centro Sperimentale per le Arti Contemporanee; Eco e Narciso; the Gai – Association for the Circuit of Young Italian Artists; Cittadellarte – Fondazione Pistoletto; Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo; PAV – Parco Arte Vivente; Spinola Banna Art Foundation
