A textbook example of island biogeography, it is a good starting point for stories from the history of conservation biology and biodiversity in the anthropocene. The only human inhabitant of the island was bryologist Loro Moron. Named Lorenzo by his parents and 'loco' by the international scientific community, the eccentric yet brilliant Loco Loro Moron spent 6 years living on Trap until it was destroyed in a volcanic eruption of Krakatoan magnitude on 27 July 1998.

Kaupo Kikkas’ exhibition “Statue”
03.08.2022 to 14.08.2022
“A statue can be the base of an entire structure as well as a highlighted cult object at once.

In cooperation with make-up artist Õnne Rudi, top Estonian athletes were turned into human sculptures, bringing to life the beauty ideals of ancient Greece.

Andres Koort „Chaos and Order“
Andres Koort „Chaos and Order“
27.07.2022 to 22.08.2022
Andres Koort will open his personal exhibition Chaos and Order in Hobusepea gallery at 18:00 on Wednesday, July 27th, 2022. Exhibition will be open until August 22nd, 2022.  The title Chaos and Order refers to the two opposite forces and the motion between these two states. Etymologically, the word “chaos” is related to Greek verb “χαίνω” that denoted the yawning emptiness, void, gap. This is the initial existence of non-existence of things; a state consisting of a potential, a yearning for getting structured. This is the commencement phase of things charged with pure energy, the birth moment of all things. Also, exact sciences study the essence of “chaos”. According to the theory of chaos, there are a systematic ground structure, constant feedback, repetitions, self-resemblance, fractals and self-organization behind the seemingly random behaviour of chaotic complex system.
Varvara & Mar “After Everyone has Left for Planet B”
General common sense would say that there is no Planet B, and we should focus and target all resources on fixing planet Earth which humanity has managed to bring to a fatal stage. We are living in the geological time known as the Anthropocene – the age when human activity began to influence the planet’s climate and ecosystems significantly.     Nevertheless, the super-rich, like Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos, choose to invest (but also obtain a big junk of public funding) in space research and speculate about the possibility of leaving for Planet B. Surprisingly, such naive escapism gains attention instead of undoing the ecological damage on Earth and begins to be considered as an alternative option to the heavily contaminated and problematic Planet A. The billionaires reassure the public of their altruistic intentions for a better future while realizing their power, capital, and technophilia dreams.   Why do people like Elon Musk want to save us? And most importantly, why do they want us to believe that we need to be saved?

29.07.2022 to 28.08.2022
On Friday, July 29 at 6:00 p.m., the exhibition “7 artists. Body“ will open in the large gallery of Tartu Art House. The curators of the exhibition are Mall Nukke and Tiiu Rebane. The conceptual starting point of the exhibition is the “body“. What is the body, right here and now? Is it topical, sexual, social, cultural, environmentally sensitive, political, spiritual, or something else? How “is” something a body and another thing “is not”? The exhibition dedicated to the figurative paintings of seven artists is a continuation of the series of exhibitions held at the initiative of the painter Mall Nukke and under the auspices of the Estonian Painters Association. The series started in the spring of 2021 at the Rantakasarmi Gallery of the Helsinki Artists’ Association in Suomenlinna, Finland.
