Students demand sleepwalker sculpture is removed over ‘sexual assault’ fears

The greyish hue, the outstretched arms, the unnerving facial expression. Yes, we can certainly see why this piece of ‘art’ is giving university students such a frightAn incredibly lifelike sculpture of a half-naked, sleepwalking man is striking fear into the hearts of students at a women’s collegeSo far, more than 300 students have signed a petition demanding its removal from the Wellesley College campus – but the president says the piece of art is part of the intellectual process. 

The sculpture – titled Sleepwalker – is the work of artist Tony Matelli and part of an exhibition at the Massachusetts college’s Davis Museum. It shows a man dressed in only his underpants apparently frozen in time as he sleepwalks. But according to some who signed the petition, the piece of art is ‘a source of apprehension, fear, and triggering thoughts regarding sexual assault’. The college defended the work claiming it ‘has started an impassioned conversation about art, gender, sexuality and individual experience, both on campus and on social media’.

President H Kim Bottomly and museum director Lisa Fischman said in a joint statement: ‘The very best works of art have the power to stimulate deeply personal emotions and to provoke unexpected new ideas, and this sculpture is no exception.’ However, one student – freshman Bridget Schreiner – told the Boston Globe she was ‘freaked out’ the first time she saw the sculpture. She said: ’This could be a trigger for students who have experienced sexual assault.’
