PRESS RELEASE

HENRY HÜTT (1985) will open his personal exhibition Romantic Loneliness in
Hobusepea gallery at 6pm on Wednesday, September 20, 2017. The exhibition
is part of the gallery programme of Tallinn Photomonthꞌ17 contemporary
art biennial.

Henri Hütt’s solo exhibition Romantic Loneliness continues his series of
staged spaces. This time the focus centres around the border between the visible
and the apparent.

“The city resonates around me. I am alone, accompanied by the familiar feeling of loneliness and that’s how it should stay forever. There is too little time, I have to experience everything, manage to accomplish double plans, arrange double
meetings, in order to be alone. Unknown environments distort dimensions and
I am moving step by step towards an unreachable horizon. Later on, before entering
the reality zone, I am walking in the dawn along empty streets and I feel the
irresistibly strong feeling that I would like to share it with others…”

Why, on the other hand, does it seem so wrong?
What happens when one shares something with others?
What do they get from sharing the experience?
What is worth sharing?
Am I then still alone?

Idea and execution: Henri Hütt
Technical support: Taavi Suisalu
Sound composition: Mihkel Tomberg

Exhibition will be open until October 10, 2017.
