What is boredom?
Sometimes it feels that it disappears like a phantom when you try to chase it.
Please come to the artist talk this Friday, from 5pm-7pm to share thoughts about boredom together with us at Galerie Pleiku.
Noora & Hannah
/ Life is Boring
& Hannah Bohnen
What do trivial moments tell us about boredom and how can one reflect them within art?
The Life is Boring exhibition at Galerie Pleiku has been created through a year-long dialogue between Noora Lehtovuori and Hannah Bohnen. The artists found a common ground in their fascination with boredom. Mundane somewhat trivial things to which they gave an inverse meaning while considering the relationship between time and the way of being in the world. The exhibition includes everyday scenes from a mountain in Iceland written by Noora Lehtovuori as well as a sound piece based on the movement of water recorded on the same mountain. For the exhibition space Hannah Bohnen presents sculpted surfaces reflecting the phenomenon of tendril perversion. The repeated movement of this natural geometric occurrence is also described in her animated video piece.
