Text and sound performance
The work deals with the inability to produce and to go forward, depressed vulnerability and time, illness and knowledge production, the dream of a beach, and noise and hope.
Noise-time was performed for the first time at the 10th Somatechnics conference in Byron Bay in Australia in December 2016. The performance in Galleri Syster in Luleå is the second one.

Vappu writes: ”Come talk about art and work. Come if you want to know more about my work or if you would like to talk about your work. Bring your portfolio if you have one and want to show it. Or let’s not talk about work at all and just have a cup of coffee!”
Wed 15 February, at 14.00–18.00
