Dreams’ Time Capsule at the Castello di Rivoli Museo d’Arte Contemporanea, Rivoli, Italy

The Dreams’ Time Capsule project was hosted at the Castello di Rivoli Museo d’Arte Contemporanea in Rivoli in Italy, from June to September 2014.
Eva Frapiccini was invited to participate in the group exhibition Ritratto dell’ Artista da Giovane | Portrait of the artist as a Young (Wo)man, curated by Marcella Beccaria. The exhibition explored the remarkable development of contemporary art in Italy over the last ten years, and included 25 artists from the latest generations to be promoted by the museum thanks to the generous contribution of the Castello’s Friends. In the same exhibition, there was a selection of the work in progress Dream Diary, in which Frapiccini used some of the dreams from the Dreams Time Capsule project’s audio archive.

We wish to thank all the Al Riwaq team and the volunteers for their support. We would also like to thank all the artists and visitors who shared with us this great experience. Inshallah we’ll see soon.

Dreams’ Time Capsule in Bogotà, Colombia

By invitation of the Department of Arts & Design at the University Jorge Taleo in Bogotà, Colombia, the Dreams’ Time Capsule project was staged over two days, on August 26th and 27th 2013 at the university library.

The event was in doubt until a few days before the scheduled date, because the airline company temporarily lost the suitcase (with the installation in it) leaving it in Paris during the transfer from Turin to Bogotà. It took three weeks of frantic phone calls to get the suitcase and the inflatable installation inside it back. Our greetings during this episode go to Viviana, Sally and Oscar Munoz, and Diana from the residency Lugar a Dudas for their support during our journey in Colombia. We always remember “hay que tener fe’!

Following this, on August 26th, an event curated and organised by Professor Catalina Quijano and Dr Carolina Forero engaged audience and volunteers to inform participants about the purpose and process of the survey. Academic and non-academics audience replied enthusiastically and contributed to the audio archive more than 114 dream testimonies.

On August 30th, there has been also a talk on dreams at the ADEPAC Association for Jungian Studies with Prof. Juan Carlos Alonso. http://www.adepac.org/inicio/eva-frapiccini-2/

Our personal greetings to Graciela and Duque’s family for their kindness. Thanks to all participants, organisers and researchers. We really enjoyed the spirit of Colombia (in spite of all the difficulties we experienced because of the airline companies!)

Dreams’ Time Capsule in Turin, Italy

From 3rd to 6th November 2011, during the Artissima Art Fair in Turin, an experimental version of the Dreams’ Time Capsule was exhibited at the Piazza Maria Teresa. The installation was designed in collaboration with the architecture studio Plastique Fantastique in Berlin as a test-study structure to be used only once.

The public installation was a satellite of the solo show Museum Caneira | The physics of the possible by the artist Eva Frapiccini at the Peola Simondi Gallery (former Alberto Peola Gallery). During the three-day-long presentation, almost one hundred dream testimonies from a cross-section of the population were collected. Many generations, and nationalities were represented, and the initiative attracted a good public response, including feedback from visitors who would not normally engage with contemporary art.

We want to say thanks to all the volunteers and collaborators who helped us to join this goal.
