The gallery (standard large white room with concrete floor) gradually fills with people. Many of them know each other (as at all openings). They chat and drink and smoke. There’s a bar and a DJ (it’s a party). A few hours of this. Then a single, sharp, clap-like sound: and some of the partygoers fall down and remain on the floor (frozen, as if sleeping or unconscious) for 10 to 15 minutes. I think it’s all being photographed (or filmed).
