NAPPING at MoMA
Tilda Swinton is accomplishing what I’d love to do on the average day - take a nap at work. The actress best known for her androgynous looks has been on display at MoMa in a performance piece she calls, “The Maybe”.
Museum goers were surprised to find Swinton supposedly sleeping inside a enclosed glass box, furnished with only a white mattress, pillow, carafe of water and a glass. She sleeps during the museums open hours - some have said they’ve only seen her move or turn but never rouse.
“The Maybe” has been scheduled for six more performances throughout the year, though no one seems to know exactly when. Swinton has performed this piece in previous years: 1995 at London’s Serpentine Gallery and 1996 at Museo Barracco in Rome.
