tomando-lhe a mão fiz com que seus dedinhos roçassem os atalhos da minha geringonça, e depois se molhassem dentro do que ela diz doce escultura 

[taking her hand I made her gentle fingers brush through the shortcuts to my jaunty gadget, just to douse them inside what she calls her sweet sculpture], 2017

Screen printing on plexiglass, metal, digital clock, dust.

90 x 210 x 30 cm each (size of working tables at Jan van Eyck Akademie). 

Sculptures addressing dead time at the studio, a series of graphic drawings generated by boredom when waiting to videos to export in studio.

SleepWorkers shows imagery of Jan Van Eyck Academie staff and participants in deep sleep. Their thoughts are floating as fluids vanishing in vapor.

Like in The True Sentimental Bitch (2016), SleepWorkers explores how sleep and dreams are disappearing from the lives of the human being due, the intensification of the 24/7 culture: the end of sleep and the new modes of production reflected through the use of the daily digital technologies. Thus, sleep and rest represent forms of resistance by the resetting of the body. During this condensed period of time repressed desires and contemporary fears as anxiety and uncertainty emerge. It seems pertinent to me to reflect about this segment of time –the unconscious mind, the transitional body and its reproduction of mental landscapes.
