Italian artist Paola Pivi just launched a new exhibit in Rome that invites strangers to share a mattress.
IT’s actually an installation with giant mattresses on the ceiling and floor of a condensed space, which the artist calls a spontaneous gesture away from the everyday.
“Usually a smile comes to your face,” she told Sleek. “And then people roll around. Relax — it’s a bit like taking a power nap to be there. It’s like a re-generating feeling. It definitely give you a feeling of euphoria.
It’s happiness. It also takes away the body language of people, the usual one, as people are very, very comfortable. When you explore a show with other strangers, it creates a friendly intimacy between people.”
