Procrastination is a pretty universal phenomenon. The possibility of instant satisfaction often appears far more attractive than some vague reward in the future. That is why many of us suddenly start to do the dishes, vacuum clean or tidy up the flat when we really should be preparing for an approaching deadline.

In this film the artist Björn Perborg reveals how his plans for a two month residency in Copenhagen turned into something else and how he, in the end, had produced nothing but a short film about procrastination.

Björn Perborg is a Swedish contemporary artist and filmmaker, best known for his playful sculptures and animations, lined with humour and astonishment before what is taken for granted or considered normality.

Björn Perborg was born in Västerås, Sweden. He currently lives and works on the island of Orust. After music studies in Örebro and Moscow, he switched to fine art and graduated from the Valand art academy in Gothenburg in 2003. Björn has also studied filmmaking at EICTV on Cuba and at Wits School of Art in Johannesburg.

Björn’s short films and video installations departs either from his own experiences, observations or from found stories. Larger solo shows include »Geschichten aus dem Koffer« at Künstlerhaus Bethanien in Berlin, 2009, and the retrospective »Being Björn Perborg« at Konstnärshuset in Stockholm, 2014.
