ZZZZZ: SLEEP, SOMNAMBULISM, MADNESS

Zzzzz: Sleep, Somnambulism, Madness assembles and commissions works by a selection of Australian and international artists to explore the representation of the sleeping figure within contemporary art, and how artists attempt to explore ideas of the subconscious, sleep psychosis and altered states. Other works within the exhibition explore the politics of sleep in our rapidly evolving times, to consider the impacts of work and economic pressures upon relaxation, but also in terms of the consequences of sleep deprivation as a form of military persecution.
