The first Rauma Triennale, to be held this summer, will challenge you to consider the value of boredom – a phenomenon seemingly to be avoided at all costs in our time, the stimulus-packed era of digitalisation and globalisation. What do we lose if we give up boredom? Does boredom hide something worth holding on to?
The exhibition is hosted by the Rauma Art Museum and the abandoned shopping centre of Tarvontori. Boredom is present in the works in a number of ways: as a laborious technique, slow-paced contents or an appearance that demands it be explored without hurry.
