Actress Tilda Swinton Sleeps in Glass Box

Actress Tilda Swinton Sleeps in Glass Box

Oscar winning actress Tilda Swinton caught sleeps in a box at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA). The Moonrise Kingdom star began presenting her work, which is called The Maybe, on Saturday.

In The Maybe, 52-year-old Swinton lies sleeping in a glass box for the day. The exhibit will move locations within the museum every time Swinton performs. There is no published schedule for the piece, which will be staged six or so more times this year. Swinton first performed the piece at the Serpentine Gallery in London in 1995.

In 1996, the British star performed it in the Museo Barracco in Rome. Swinton won an Oscar in 2008 for best supporting actress for her role in legal drama Michael Clayton, which also starred George Clooney, Tom Wilkinson and Sydney Pollack.
