»Poems about waking up and going to sleep. Half fake to make you awake half-real to make you sleep. Not always good rhymes at all times OK« @wakingupgoingtosleep
Former fellows Sofie Verraest and Gabriella Torres-Ferrer met during their residencies at Akademie Schloss Solitude in 2020. This resulted in a collaboration currently reflected in a digital project that has been taking place on social media over the course of several months: In the series Waking up going to sleep, a poem (by Sofie Verraest) is combined with an accompanying image (by Gabriella Torres-Ferrer) and shared every day on the project’s social media channels – at the precise time they go to bed and get up.
