Sleep asserts the primacy of the body not as a unit of consumption but as an organism in its environmental and evolutionary context. Embedded in circadian rhythms and neuroanatomy, the logic of sleep has increasingly diverged from the demands of the current market economy and the society that produced it, carving out a site of passive resistance. In short, sleep has become an anti-social activity—it questions the very notion of “productivity.” The artists represented in this show make work that addresses sleep as a subversive act against the oppression of the 24/7 economy we inhabit today.     The Baroque Power Group  (comprising AP Alumni  Hovey Brock ,  Quinn Dukes ,  Alexandra Hammond , and  JD Raenbeau)  presents:   REPOSE: Sleep and autonomy in hypercapitalism   OPENING: Friday, October 30th, 6-9pm  184 Project Space 184 HALL ST, BROOKLYN, NY  Hours by appointment through November 27th  ARTISTS: Trevor Amery, Mary Jones, Charlie Schneider and Virginia Wagner
