THE WORLD'S GREATEST MAGIC SHOW RIGHT BEFORE YOUR VERY EYES
A 5-year installation work by Vincent Gambini
Can a magic show take place inside your mind whilst you sleep?
This is the premise for a 5-year work commissioned for the Art B&B in Blackpool, in which every room is an artwork specially designed by an artist. For my room, I designed the room to focus on the act of sleep itself, specifically the dreams one might dream inside the room. To frame the act of dreaming as a kind of 'magic show', a book featuring impossible feats sits by the bedside table for you to read. On the walls, behind individual sets of parting red velvet curtains, hang a series of specially made artworks that refer back to the events in the book. Together, the book and the artworks stimulate the reader's imagination, before bed time, so that your dreams might feature impossible magic feats.
