Actress sleeping in a box, Tilda Swinton will take residency at New York's Modern Museum of Art by participating in a performance art piece.
The actress will be sleeping inside a glass box in unannounced, random days throughout March, as part of her 1995 piece "The Maybe."
A MoMa sourced shared about the performance art piece by Siwonton, "Museum staff doesn't know she's coming until the day of, but she's here today. She'll be there the whole day. All that's in the box is cushions and a water jug."
Siwnton, 52, first did the performance piece at London's Serptentine Gallery in collaboration with British sculptor Cornelia Parker and actress Joanna Scanlan in 1995, she slept in the glass box for a week. She repeated the performance in 1996 at the Museo Barracco in Rome.
MoMa said about Siwnton's piece in a press release, "An integral part of 'The Maybe's' incarnation at MoMA in 2013 is that there is no published schedule for its appearance, no artist's statement released, no museum statement beyond this brief context, no public profile or image issued. Those who find it chance upon it for themselves, live and in real-shared-time: now we see it, now we don't."
Swinton is busy not only with the performance piece, this week she added the opening of the huge Victoria and Albert Museum "David Bowie Is" exhibit, even delivering a speech about Bowie. She managed to make an appearance in video for Bowie's new album.
The glass box is currently located near the ticket collectors as of Saturday, march 23, however the box may be in different locations on other days.
