Landscapes of Ennui


“Landscapes of Ennui” explores the privilage of boredom in a society of inequality and the constant demands for action. Pascal in “Pensées” uses the term “ennui” in a modern way, picturing the man that is convinced that only his actions will create his path, and, as response of such a struggle, takes no action at all.




Making my own interpretation of the term, in “Landscapes of Ennui” I  take close portraits of my body, placing myself in this state of comfort, whithin the insignificance of monotony.

A woman finds herself alone in her house, and an intolerable anguish seizes her, body and soul; her ennui almost turns into fear.

(Andrè Gidé , “... A wall of rain separated me from the rest of the world, far from any passion, far from life.”)

Trapped in a methaphisical disorder of time and space, her sighs get encapsulated in glass terrariums. Incapable of moving, turns herself into a landscape of gold, flesh and loneliness.
