PRESS RELEASE

JENNY GRÖNHOLM (1988) will open her personal exhibition Wreck in Hobusepea gallery at 5pm on Wednesday, August 2nd, 2017.

Usually shipwrecks are caused by either a storm, running aground, colliding another ship or an iceberg, a fire, or military action. A ship is also considered a wreck when it is away at sea and no messages are being received from the vessel during a longer period of time. Current exhibition is not solely about a shipwreck but rather a story about situations that are impossible to describe with words. According to the artist she has depicted moments before the mystrious „something” – situations preceding the unknown.

Jenny Grönholm was born in Finland; she currently lives and works in Tallinn. She obtained BA degree in the department of printmaking, faculty of fine arts at the Estonian Academy of Arts in 2015. She is presently continuing her MA studies in the department of sculpture and installation at the Estonian Academy of Arts. Since 2009, Jenny Grönholm has participated in several group exhibitions both in Finland and Estonia. Her painting series I Painted My Friends, in Dark Tones as Usual was exhibited at her personal exhibition in Draakon gallery in spring 2017.

Exhibition will be open until August 28, 2017.

Supported by the Cultural Endowment of Estonia.

Exhibitions in Hobusepea gallery are supported by the Cultural Endowment of Estonia and Estonian Ministry of Culture.
