The artist presented a series of sculptural assemblages and 2D works that lay across the floor and wall. A figure of a man lies upon simulated grass. Contorted, the figure is between movements, not quite resting, not quite moving, as it crawls in a static position with a head that reads, “Sleep, who has time for that.”
Confused and jetlagged, the works sit somewhere between hyper-productivity and exhaustion. “I’m walking, walking, I’m falling into a green haze. I’m trying to catch sleep but it keeps slipping away,” writes curator Christina Gigliotti in an accompanying text on mental and physical states of insomnia and deadlines.**
