Virgile Sleeps, 6 sketches for a film

Virgile Novarina conducts, for more than 20 years, a survey on sleeping. His research lead him to produce some "night writings and drawings" during micro-awaking, to sleep in a Bremen laboratory in order to researchers to analyze his sleep different forms, and also to produce an image of the sleep in public places all around the world: the one from Virgile sleeping.

The week of 21st to 26th January 2013, from 9 am to 6 pm, he slept during the day, in the Inlassable Gallery window, 18 Dauphine street in Paris. For each of these days, Jean Seban proposes a film as a vision of this performance.
