Can one stroll through a novel? In the exhibition Mulch Sleep, Baha Görkem Yalım (DAI, 2018) ( artist, educator and dear member of DAI's crew ~ as so many of you know) introduces you to the exhibition-novel, a form of wordless writing. Language has an undeniable influence on our perception. It dictates our reading of the world. Dominant narratives come with a history of oppression, hierarchy, and inequality. Yalım’s exploration of what language can be subverts these overpowering narratives using only two tools: autofiction and sleep. In doing so, Yalım tells a shared story that is also highly personal. Mulch Sleep is an exhibition that dozes off, creating an in-between world to dream anew. Among sculptural works, videos, sounds and installations that poetically combine a sense of estrangement and familiarity, comfort and sterility, visitors join a slumbering presence. Will you dream with it? DAI community welcome at the opening at "1646" in The Hague on Saturday 11 November, 2023 from 15:00 to 18:00 !
