Sleep Date with Lu Zhang

07.31.2024
6:00 pm–8:00 pm

Sleep Date is a dating experience that draws inspiration from a traditional Chinese phrase: It Takes Hundreds of Years to Sleep on the Same Pillow. The proverb is an invocation of yuánfèn, the concept that past lives are possible chances for encounters, friendships and love. Participants will be paired with a partner and offered a shared pillow, and the chance to rest together for a short period of time. Afterwards, participants can reflect on their dreams and experience sleeping on the same pillow. In proposing collective sleep dates as a radical act of kung fu (the Nineteen Styles of Sleeping on the Same Pillow script), this experience offers a dreamy platform for exchanges of energy, memory and brain waves between participants.

 

Lu Zhang is a New York based artist born in Xi’an, China. She creates intimate experiences that reenact memories and dream states to tell stories in the form of installations incorporating ceramics and video; she also works collaboratively in performances that engage the public in explorations about the nature of relationships.

Lu  received her MFA in Fine Arts and MS in Art History from Pratt Institute and holds a BA degree in Economics from Xi’an JiaoTong University. Lu’s Recent exhibitions include public space in Flushing, New York, Wing On Wow & Co, Macau Biennial, Yve Yang Gallery, Art Lot, Pearl River Mart, Yeh Art Gallery, Underdonk, Latitude Gallery, The Clemente Soto Vélez, Special Special, NARS Foundation, Museum of Chinese in America, A.I.R Gallery. Lu has given artist talks, lectures and public programs nationally and internationally.

 

About Cosmologyscape

This program is part of Creative Time’s public art commission Cosmologyscape by artists Alisha B Wormsley and Kite. The multimedia and participatory public art project, presented by Creative Time, is an invitation to the public to dream. Cosmologyscape seeks to harness the duality of dreams—as both individual tools of self-awareness and collective acts of imagination and world-building—and encourages the exploration of dreaming practices through an artist designed interface. How does it work? Take a nap, zone out, find your dream state. After that, visit www.cosmologyscape.com to submit your dream, and if you need help dreaming, follow a Dream Path on the website designed by a group of interdisciplinary artists. The dreams shared with Cosmologyscape will then be translated algorithmically into a pattern derived from Lakota visual language and Black quilting references, represented first in a growing digital tapestry of our collective dreams, and ultimately, into a series of sculptures unveiled in the fall, designed for further rest and dreaming.
