About The Work

Siesta Club is a paradox in terms, Adrien Missika explains, “the siesta is highly individual by definition, whereas the word "club" suggests something done in a group, as a community. I intended Siesta Club as sharing an experience that is usually quite individual, betwixt waking and sleep, reality and imagination, inspiration and productivity.” For this project, Missika created a relaxation room, a deliberately humorous version the "siesta," long associated with many Central and South American cultures. Missika's Siesta Club plays with this cliché and reflects on the concept of time which is conferred ever different values depending on the economic, cultural and geographical setting where we live—sometimes we control it compulsively and sometimes, more naturally, we let it flow. The hammock is an emblem of relaxation and so, in Missika's eyes, a place of reflection with no time limit, a dimension that hangs between the physical and mental dimensions, as well as a space, a container.
