Welcome to BedBlogger, an online creative response devised and curated by Tink Flaherty exploring the idea that having a ‘bed day’ is something to hide, a waste of time and a signifier of being lazy instead of an act of self-care.
Tink has invited seven artists – Moni Onojeruo, Lucy Hutson, Peyvand Sadeghian, Eliza Goroya, Abra Flaherty, Adam Frost and Daniel Oliver – to respond to the same provocation: How do we challenge the stigma associated with spending a day in bed, which is seen as time-written off against the capitalist expectation to always ‘be productive’.
The responses will be revealed day-by-day below, one for each day of the week. You can access 7 artist's work across 7 days on this website by scrolling down. Click on the artist's name to hear more about their experience of staying on bed.
Take your time, we hope you enjoy our work.
