Jewish Women Tilda Swinton sleeps in MOMA of NY
The actress Jewish Women Tilda Swinton sleeps in MOMA of NY, sleeps in a crystal sitting in the MOMA of NY like part of an installation.
Oscar-winner Tilda Swinton slept in a glass case at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York as part of the unannounced installation “The Maybe”, according to US media reports today.
Neither the museum authorities nor the staff were informed in advance, according to the New York Daily News. Visitors who were lucky enough to be present just at that moment were able to watch the 52-year-old actress during her “artistic dream” in blue jeans and blouse.
Swinton plans to return several times to the glass case, but always without notice. In his absence, there will only be a mattress, cushion, sheet, bottle of water and glasses.
Facing the incredulous look of the tourists, who did not believe what they were watching, the Scottish actress spent seven hours locked in a glass urn lying on a mattress, with a pillow, water and glasses. The work is called The Maybe, since it is not known when it will be exposed or not. That is why the museum has decided not to advertise or advertise about it, as it is a work that is due to chance. “Nobody knows when it comes, those who find it will be by chance,” the museum said. The aim of this work is to surprise everyone who passes by the museum. Throughout this year, Tilda will go to sleep in her glass case whenever she pleases and will be able to change places and even sleep in any space of the Museum.
With the performance “The Maybe” Swinton had already caught the glances at the London Serpentine Gallery and then also in Rome. The British won an Oscar in 2008 as best supporting actress for “Michael Clayton.”
“There was no opening timetable, no artist statement or museum declaration outside of this brief context, no public profile or image was issued,” the statement said. “Those who fortunately find it, they will see it live, in real time and shared: now we see it, not now.”
