Don’t Wake the Neighours


An all night reading event on the theme of insomnia. Readings (including lengthy clinical descriptions of insomnia, notes on the philosophy of sleep, long and short essays, quotations and aphorisms on the theme of insomnia from the well known to the obscure) in Korean and English were organized in a grid or overlapping form, in terms of theme and duration.
The event in which the public were invited to listen – via headphones – to live readings of these texts while sitting/lying on a purpose built wooden platform began at 12 Midnight and lasted until 6am. It was advertised in the art world and on Seoul-based social media platforms.
