Boredom

2015 - 2021

Boredom is an intuitive meditation on being in the present while we are subject to both an extreme acceleration of time and moments of time standing still. The work explores ‘being-with’ and ‘being present’ as meaningful ways to embody both selfcare and reciprocity. Fish and birds are symbols of inherently migratory creatures that are ‘stuck’ in place, removed from their natural environments to convey the unease of an inability to freely travel. The animals and the figures both experience the loss of being able to wander the world as they once had and long for a return to movement. Figures that have wings and fish fins in this series of work imagine a future of movement and living more symbiotically with the land.
