Stories I tell you when you sleep – Sofie Adelsparre in Russia

Danish Cultural Institute in St. Petersburg exhibits Sofie Adelsparre’s “Stories I tell you when you sleep”



DCI in St. Petersburg is currently showing the exhibition “Stories I tell you when you sleep” by Danish artist and actress Sofie Adelsparre. “Stories I tell you when you sleep” is a photographic series created since 2015.


Despite being from 10 different countries these images are place neutral and study the shared human experience of trying to balance the domesticated and the wild. It looks at the animal living in our homes between our furniture. That animal can be a pet we have tamed, the unwelcome wild creeping in through the floor cracks – or the untamed in ourselves.
