What makes us experience well-being and satisfaction in our free time? How do we detach ourselves from work and our everyday responsibilities. 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 hide to find out more about Swedish outdoor life.
The participating Swedish and international artists are: Gerd Aurell, Brice Bourdet, Christian Jankowski, Anna Lidberg, Roland Persson, Åsa Sonjasdotter, SpY and Helena Wikström. Klick on the names to read about their works.
The exhibition Spare Time is part of an international project, and exhibitions on the same theme are exhibited in Latvia, Bulgaria and Czech republic during 2011. The project is supported from the European Commission.
