“…on the horizon of the modern world dawns the black sun of boredom”

Henri Lefebvre, Critique of Everyday Life: Volume 2, 1961

Boredom can be defined as the inability of the imagination to synthesise the past and the future into the present, leaving the individual momentarily dislocated from the normal rhythms of life. Black Sun Horizon brings together a group of artists whose work hints at the roots and nature of this particularly modern condition, exploring the aesthetics and mechanics of our interactions and how the endless continuum of technological progress has done little to alleviate its symptoms.
