The Boring Exhibition – Behind the Scenes with Dawn Parsonage


Are you ready to immerse yourself in boredom?

Dawn Parsonage has been working hard on her latest project and debut show The Boring Exhibition. Opening on 27th of June, the series delves into boredom through photography, film and interaction via the artists found photography and newly created body of work – resulting in a humorous, beautiful and utterly boring exhibition.

Using the concept that ‘we all can relate to boredom’, Dawn aims to inspire the audience to resonate with questions such as – What does boredom mean in our modern lives? When was the last time you were bored? Why are playful photographs of boredom so funny? What is my expression right now as I’m reading this?

Metro Imaging was pleased to support Dawn from start to finish throughout the production process for this series. Beginning with high-resolution scanning of the archive photographs, our expert technicians worked with her on each of the selected files; digital print technician Manish worked on the images to produce professional and archival C-type prints, while technician Sean worked on scanned files to produce the fibre based Black and White Silver Gelatin prints. Finally, Metro’s expert finishing team mounted a selection of the artworks onto aluminium sheets for a unique installation as part of the final exhibition.

Contradictory to it’s title, ‘The Boring Exhibition’ has been a very exciting process and interesting artistic experiment to be part. Don’t miss out this unique show!
