Tilda Swinton has reprised her occasional role as woman sleeping in glass box, this time taking the art-house performance to New York. Visitors to the Museum of Modern Art were treated over the weekend to a view of the Scottish actor in a state of slumber for a piece titled "The Maybe."
It is not the first time the Oscar-winner has been caught napping. The live art piece – a collaboration with friend Cornelia Parker – debuted at the Serpentine Gallery in London's Hyde Park in 1995. It was repeated a year later at the Museo Barracco in Rome. On Saturday – after an absence of some years – Swinton reprised "The Maybe," remaining in a glass box for some six-and-a-half hours.
