Noora Lehtovuori



Life is Boring is an exhibition tour initiated by artist Noora Lehtovuori. In the exhibitions Lehtovuori is looking for and reflecting on boredom in contemporary society. The exhibition tour 2020 is a continuation of the 2019 Life is Dangerous exhibition tour which challenges the society where people tend to avoid boredom.
With the upcoming exhibitions in 2020, Lehtovuori will explore and reflect on the theme with various artists and creators; in Kannelmäki with Anne Törnroos, in Oulu with Lin Chih Tung, in Kauhava with Oula Rytkönen and in Berlin with Hannah Bohnen. The artists share a mutual interest towards boredom and want to challenge the common understanding of the word.
Also, working together is the core of these exhibitions and the exhibitions are based on dialogue. Boredom is a personal and at the same time a communal matter, and it is important to test it from different angles in an exhibition space which is dedicated to art.
Noora Lehtovuori is a multilayered artist who finds inspiration in the mundane of the everyday. Her ideas take shape by questioning the norms and habits that we seem to naturally adapt. The projects leave room for her own failures and use humour when observing a societal annoyance. Her media varies from still photography to installation, film, sound and text.

She graduated with a Master of Fine Arts degree from Valand Academy, Gothenburg University in 2018 and is expanding her artistic field with the curatorial master studies in University of the Arts Helsinki.
