Ode to Boredom

performance, Balengebouw & Rijksmuseum Twente, Enschede

Ode to Boredom was developed on the invitation of the Rijksmuseum Twente. A performance inspired on a painting from the collection; 'Girl in a White Kimono' made by Hendrik Georg Breitner (1894). A group of young woman spend their days in the exhibition space. They lounge about on grey pedestals, mumble, sing, single words and stare ahead. The performers clothes, copies of their personal favourite clothes in a fabric printed with minuscule small glass pearls forming a reflecting pattern, are part of the project Tinder Touch.
