"Sleeping with two lovers"

Each performer will move with the aim of "sleeping".

(Due to the spread of an infectious disease, the performance has been cancelled and the content changed.)


Sleeping is private, but it cannot be a private act in the sense that it falls outside of consciousness. Restful sleep is anxiety for me, and informed sleep is giving up somewhere in the process of being known.


During the exhibition (April-June 2020), a state of emergency was declared due to the spread of the new coronavirus, and the performance had to be cancelled.


I decided to sleep alone in the gallery. Every Sunday during the exhibition, I went to the gallery and think which bed I would sleep in today. A king-sized bed made by joining two beds together, or forcing two beds to be stacked on top of each other and lifted up so that they were as far away from the floor as possible, or using all ten pillows to make them rise up so that they would fit my body perfectly. I kept moving my body to sleep, and kept moving the bed, futon, and pillows to make myself sleep. And then I lost consciousness and fell asleep in the gallery while people watching me.
