Nelly Matorina: CircaSeptan

October 11, 2019 - 12:00 pm

Modern Fuel Artist-Run Centre is pleased to present a solo exhibition in the State of Flux Gallery by Nelly Matorina. The exhibition will run from September 3 to October 12, 2019.


How do the events of the day seep into our dreams? Dreams seem to lag behind. Some parts of waking life recur in dreams both immediately after the event and again at an approximately 7-day (circaseptan) delay. Circaseptan is a 4-part video installation exploring this curious delay between our waking and dream lives, as well as the layers of other rhythms we are embedded in.

Nelly Matorina (b. Latvia) is an artist and scientist working across the fields of video art, sleep and dream research, and artificial intelligence. Her work aims to bridge the gap between science fiction and current research to probe questions about sleep, dreaming, and consciousness. She completed an MSc in Psychology at Queen’s University in 2018 with a focus on sleep and memory research. Past exhibitions and screenings include Union Gallery, SAW Video, Reelout Film Festival, and Modern Fuel’s Square Pegs.

Entrance to the exhibition is free. Modern Fuel is located on the top floor of the Tett Centre. We are open noon to 5PM on Tuesdays, noon to 8PM on Wednesdays, and noon to 5PM Thursday – Saturday.
