A new opportunity for those who want to dive into the cinematic exhibition “Why Is It Hard to Love?” created by foreign artists Saskia Boddeke and Peter Greenaway at MO Museum. We invite you to the exhibition’s virtual tour and virtual excursions.
Visitors of the exhibition, created by Dutch multimedia artist S. Boddeke and one of the most original and important film directors of our time, P. Greenaway, cannot be seen for more than 2 months – from November 7 last year, when the quarantine was announced. After moving some of the works of the exhibition to the billboards outside in November, this time we present a new opportunity to see the exhibition and the artworks exhibited in it.
It is very unfortunate that the special exhibition created by foreign creators S. Boddeke and P. Greenaway is not available to visitors for so long. Thus, we invite you to virtually dive into a very complex exhibition with both themes and visual content.
Authentic images of the exhibition – also in the virtual tour
“It is very unfortunate that the special exhibition created by foreign creators S. Boddeke and P. Greenaway, which deals with topics that are very relevant today, touching on ecological, political, social, empathy and inequality in various areas of life, is not available to visitors for so long. From June to November, more than 50,000 people managed to see it. However, I believe that a lot of people didn’t have such an opportunity. Thus, we invite you to virtually dive into a very complex exhibition with both themes and visual content, ”says Milda Ivanauskiene, Director of MO Museum.
Exhibition “Why is It Hard to Love?” is like a movie. All the elements are important in it: light, sound, image, even a rain installation. Of course, it is not possible to convey a comprehensive experience in a virtual tour, but the works in the exhibition are purposefully captured in the original exhibition lighting. This allows you to feel the authentic atmosphere of the exhibition as much as possible.
