Indonesian artist Melati Suryodarmo premieres a durational performance work IF WE WERE XYZ at Asia Society. In this new work, she explores dreams—both in the sense of the subconscious experiences we have while sleeping and the conscious aspirations we have when awake. Drawing upon Javanese mysticism, traditional beliefs, the artist’s own dreams documented in a self-devised sleep laboratory, and other sources, Suryodarmo’s intensive research process leads to a visceral and immediate three-hour performance.
Entry with museum admission and permitted at any point during the three-hour performance. Space is limited.
