Sako Kojima: The Reason Why I Become A Hamster

Tue 5 - Sat 9 May 2015 | 11am - 7pm Daily | Free | Suitable for all ages

“In today’s world we don’t have physical pain anymore, but at the same time we seem to have lost the pleasure of living.”

Human beings in contemporary society have much in common with hamsters living in cages. Closed off from nature, stuffing our cheeks with food that we buy without difficulty from supermarkets… Like a hamster running on a wheel, we repeat the same routines day in, day out.

For BEHAVIOUR 2015, Japanese contemporary artist Sako Kojima makes herself at home in a scaled-up hamster cage for eight hours a day, chewing on sunflower seeds and paper.

You are invited to observe her in this unnatural habitat and consider the helplessly formulated work-eat-sleep routine of modern city dwellers.
