Spare Time



Brice Bourdet, Carla: here is elsewhere, from the series You are Here.From Spare Time exhibition at Bildmuseet, Sweden, 6 June–4 September 2011.


The Spare Time exhibition explores the concept of spare time and the impact of recreational activities. What makes us experience well-being and satisfaction in our free time? How do we detach ourselves from work and our everyday responsibilities? The participating Swedish and international artists are: Gerd Aurell, Brice Bourdet, Christian Jankowski, Anna Lidberg, Roland Persson, Åsa Sonjasdotter, SpY and Helena Wikström.


The exhibition includes photography, video, sculpture and installation, which in various ways make us reflect upon our relationship to spare time. Among other things the exhibition visitors will have the opportunity to hula hoop to the accompaniment of Chinese pop music; watch a potato field sprout and grow during the summer and climb into a bird watching tower to find out more about Swedish outdoor life.


A catalogue accompanies the exhibition.


Spare Time is part of an international project, and exhibitions on the same theme will be displayed in Latvia, Czech Republic and Bulgaria this year. The project has been funded with support from the European commission.
