According to Gothamist, Tilda Swinton, actress and noted androgyne — whose resemblance to David Bowie was solidified by her appearance in the video for “The Stars (Are Out Tonight),” off his new album — will be spending part of the next month sleeping a glass box at the Museum of Modern Art. A source tells the site, “Museum staff doesn’t know she’s coming until the day of, but she’s here today. She’ll be there the whole day. All that’s in the box is cushions and a water jug.”

Adds the source: ”Tilda Swinton will be doing unannounced, random performance art pieces sleeping in a glass box in the museum [...] Today is the first performance. Each performance lasts the whole day the museum is open.”

Today Swinton is today interred near the ticket collecting booth. She may move to other places in the museum on future dates.

A collaboration between Swinton and artist Cornelia Parker, the performance piece, entitled “The Maybe,” was first put on in 1995 at the Serpentine Gallery in London.

For more, read the full piece over at the Gothamist. And then head over to MoMA before Swinton decides she’s had enough and presumably jumps over to Guy Fieri’s American Kitchen and Bar for Guy-talian Nachos.
