ARS Showroom #025 – Fideelia-Signe Roots „Friends”
2.–31. March 2021   The exhibition is about the possibility of equal relationships between human- and nonhuman animals. Fideelia was a foster home for a cat whose name is Kant Nurrkärakas in the summer of 2020 at ARS Art Factory. Kant loved to explore the house but the artist could not leave him on his own for the safety reasons so they always walked together and protesting about taking him back to the studio, Kant used claws and teeth. The two friends were liberated and with the desire to be free so their frienship was built on the basis of mutual understanding. Fideelia believes in the liberty and equality between human- and nonhuman animals and has proved it through her practise as animal rights activist. The full potential of this is yet to arrive as the society changes its attitude towards the nonhuman animals.  
Joint exhibition “Jonas & Kaido II”
From Saturday, 27 February the joint exhibition “Jonas & Kaido II” of the painters Jonas Gasiūnas and Kaido Ole is open in the large gallery of the Tartu Art House. The exhibition is curated by Arvydas Žalpys (Meno parkas Gallery, Kaunas, Lithuania).   Although both the Lithuanian Gasiūnas and the Estonian Ole are among the most esteemed painters of their home countries, their oeuvre is in fact very different. Their personalities are also dissimilar. But something in their creative nature or in the urgency that they approach their art is still comparable. That is why it is no wonder that this is not the first exhibition where they both participate.

Exhibition will stay open until March 15, 2021.             By weaving together drawing, ceramic, concrete products and found objects, the exposition constructs a wandering narrative about the longing to be elsewhere and creating fictional worlds into your everyday. The exhibition invites you to a swift sensory journey, in which a comforting familiarity that comes with previously perceived objects and phenomena is mixed with playful scenes of imagination.   ☆   Where do you go when days blend into one, when nostrils are longing for spring? Where do you go when slipping into reverie?

Liisa Kruusmägi “Underneath the Hot Sun”
On February 19, at 19:00, the exhibition “Dreamers” by painter Liisa Kruusmägi (33) will be opened at the Solaris Gallery. The exhibition is based on the author's latest work. While in the past Liisa has mainly painted people in different moments and environments, the theme of the new exhibition is deeply related to nature - in a very positive sense. Recently, more and more time has been spent in nature, hiking there and observing its life processes. Central to the pictures in the exhibition is a dreamer who, while in nature, enjoys it, it is like a world of good dreams. The one lying on the living room carpet has been replaced by an observer of the flying stars on the beach sand, and the anxious coucher has gone to the forest, bowed to the shore of a small lake, instead of the phone-selfie, looking at her reflection on the surface of the water, stepped a little further, and then found some beautiful boletus that had made the day.  
“Apocalyptic landscapes” Anonymous Boh / Devil Girl
Apocalyptic Landscapes exhibition deals with subcultures and human communities operating in and alongside the mainstream of our society, whose goals and patterns of behavior create the basis for the birth of a whole new society - a changed world order, the reincarnation of mythological creatures in apocalyptic fields. By exhibiting a living being as a mini-form of society and nature, through outer masks and protective layers. Bringing out the inner desires and passions of the human soul, as well as the hidden gray areas of the collective body.   Anonymous Boh (Al Paldrok) and Taje Paldrok (Devil Girl) have been active on a frameless territory where an art object has seized to exist as a physical piece. Space has many dimensions upon which the activity has been built, it can be characterized by features as structured chaos and performances.
Holger Loodus. I Love Eternal Life Photography, pigment print, 55 x 55 (95 x 95) cm, 2019
Some years ago, Holger Loodus travelled north of the Arctic Circle, where he witnessed Syrian refugees’ journey across northern Russia down into Europe. This experience inspired his exhibition “Journey to the End of the World” (Tallinn Art Hall Gallery, 09.09.-08.10.2017). By now, the experience of that time has acquired solid contours, and a high, man-made mountain with steep slopes has emerged, which resembles a purgatory.   “Reimagining Those Old Slopes” depicts a process in which the vision of the universe known from history demystifies and becomes a product aimed for the masses. Through his own eyes, the artist modernises the hill of purgatory created by the Italian poet Dante Alighieri at the beginning of the 14th century. Holger Loodus aims to look at how a mystical object loses its moralizing content to become an easily acceptable attractive design object. However, this process opens up completely new perspectives.
