A classic nightmare for some people would be getting caught sleepwalking outside in a public place and in a near naked state. At a gallery opening in Chelsea a couple of weeks ago, I came across a surreal manifestation of this notion with a very realistic cast bronze sculpture called " sleepwalker", by Tony Matelli, (Marlborough Gallery). In this case the public (as always) was armed with cameras and an impromptu interaction was soon taking place. I wonder what this sleepwalker would think if he were to awaken in our photo-op world.
