Bedtime Stories for Sleepless Nights is a solo exhibition of photographs by Calgary artist Julya Hajnoczky. Damaged and discarded books are transformed into miniature theatre sets where intricately cut paper characters play out dreams and nightmares in whimsical but ominous photographic tableaux. Delicate forests of paper trees threaten to engulf houses, a tiny Minotaur conquers his paper labyrinth, a woman sews herself fragile paper wings and learns to fly, a mutant creature lurks in the graveyard, awaiting your visit.
