The One Minutes

WHEN: Monday 1 May 02:30 - Wednesday 31 May 00:00

On permanent display in WOW’s lobby.

The One Minutes Series / Nightmares Of The Sun / Curated by Khavn / May 2017 / HD video, 13.07 min

Khavn invited artists and filmmakers to visualize their daily nightmares. Nightmares of the sun occur when what you fear at night happens during the day. You cannot escape from the sun, no colour, just light and dark. What are the names of the nightmares, which disturb you when you close or open your eyes? From the mythological to the psychological. From the political to the personal. We are all victims of our own fears.

Participating artists

Khavn, Mikael Bundsen, James Ocampo, Chris Furby, Jen Balberona, Eko Nugroho, Nuri Jeong, Anne Acuña and AA dela Cruz, Allan Balberona, Aroonakorn Pick, Peter Westenberg, John Paulo Manat, Tommaso Donati.
