Hot pillows, a cold limb vulnerable outside the blanket, a watch beeping on the hour. In the liminal hours between dark and light, the most quiet noises and thoughts are amplified. For some, the sleepless night presents a private space to exist outside the pressures of the day. For others, it is a lonely toil, or a silent theatre of looping anxieties.

This exhibition brings together five local artists working in a range of mediums to respond to the lived experience of sleeplessness, exploring themes such as self-identity, exhaustion, intimacy and memory.
