Does the oyster sleep?

Sophie Bissonnette / Martin Duckworth / Joyce Rock, Marguerite Duras, Maja Borg, Sara Eliassen, Silvia Gruner, Waël Noureddine
Curated by Pip Day and Irmgard Emmelhainz
March 10 – April 15, 2017

Does the oyster sleep? explores the relationship between love and politics—two realms of human experience often understood as antagonistic to one another. The exhibition rewrites the seeming conflict between shared interest and individual desire, imagining how they can be linked through a common longing to live differently in the world. Including film and video work by Sophie Bissonnette / Martin Duckworth / Joyce Rock, Marguerite Duras, Maja Borg, Sara Eliassen, Silvia Gruner, and Waël Noureddine, Does the oyster sleep? addresses the forms of care and labour we enact for each other.
