Exhibition “Ex libris”
Exhibition “Ex libris”
to
This exhibition is inspired by the library left behind in the School n. 1 of Sillamäe, an institution that was closed in 1999. Subsequently, the building hosted the ECOMEN Institute of Economics & Management for seven years before being abandoned. In Latin, ex libris referred to anything that comes out of the books. In Medieval times, the term started to be used in relation to a book owner's identification label. Now, the library has been intruded by a series of artists, re-appropriating its materials in a parasitical way. The books are still present, alas they do not always make sense in the present. Nonetheless, their ideas and aesthetics keep on fermenting otherwise. Burden or delayed gift, the library is available for novel relations of exchange.

April 15 – May 12, 2024 Metropol 6 m2 and Metropol Cabinet (Vana-Kalamaja 46, Tallinn) Next exhibition of gallery Metropol offers a supportive ceiling and floor to an artist who has been and is in the center of events every day and at the same time slips out of focus and out of the picture. What is being and do we rembember it? What stays in the mind anyway? And does making art have anything to do with all of this? Here, the artist, the viewer and the gallery are on one equal position and we can start looking together. Toomas explains: "...the exhibits in the exhibition are most similar to paintings, but it is not certain; I've been trying to figure out some things mainly based on recollection, but the result causes misunderstanding and uncertainty; I believe that mathematics is the basis of how the world works, some formulas, some equations, some multipliers, but I can't follow the logic of calculation systems, I just am, my body waits with me, in the meantime it's pretty nice and quiet as I try to figure out what's going on.

Maria Kapajeva's solo exhibition, “Listen To My Scream, Hear Their Dreams”
We invite you to the opening of Maria Kapajeva's solo exhibition, “Listen To My Scream, Hear Their Dreams” at Draakon Gallery on Wednesday, April 17th at 18:00. The exhibition will be open until May 11, 2024. Maria Kapajeva's exhibition, "Listen To My Scream, Hear Their Dreams," is profoundly influenced by Draakon Gallery's location directly across from the Russian Embassy in Tallinn's Old Town. Positioned in this manner, Kapajeva aims to foster a more nuanced dialogue regarding the ongoing war in Ukraine, which has led to a continual exposure to harrowing imagery. Consequently, a process of desensitization has transpired, rendering us less able to empathize with the enduring violence faced by real individuals still fighting for their lives in Ukraine. The intricate details, nuances, and personal narratives have been reduced to easily shareable content that briefly crosses our screens before fading into obscurity.

“Slugs like us” by Katariin Mudist
“Slugs like us” by Katariin Mudist
to
Katariin Mudist “Slugs like us” at the HOP gallery The exhibition's opening is on April 18th at 6 p.m. accompanied by a performance by Keithy Kuuspu. A series of new texts for Katariin and her Slugs have been compiled by Sophie Durand on the occasion of this exhibition. The exhibition is open: Thu–Tue 11–18 until May 14th, 2024. The exhibition ‘Slugs like Us’ by Katariin Mudist infests the gallery with more than 300 ceramic slugs produced over the past three years. Building from an understanding that disgust and arousal are feelings that coexist, clay has been repetitively transformed into the form of a being that might ordinarily disgust into something beautiful, perhaps even erotic. Infused with their own particular kind of spunk these sculptures have been both the focus of Katariin’s making and also have been produced alongside a relentless dedication to active material inquiry into processes such as bricklaying, list making and journaling.
 “MAN&MAN: The art of Survival”
On Friday, 12 April at 5 p.m., three new group exhibitions will open in the three galleries of the Tartu Art House as part of the art project “Pärnu-Tartu-Pärnu Art Express”: “Peculiarities of South-West Estonian Anarchism” in the large gallery, “WOMAN&WOMAN: The art of Survival” in the small gallery and “MAN&MAN: The art of Survival” in the monumental gallery. The cooperative project of the Tartu Art House and Pärnu City Gallery “Pärnu-Tartu-Pärnu Art Express” brings together the art of two Estonian cities that are distant in space but close in terms of art. The aim of the project is to diversify the cultural life of the two cities with an exhibition exchange programme.
