“To Sense the Light, You Must Close Your Eyes” by Kristi Kongi & Mare Vint
On Friday, 11 November at 6 p.m. the exhibition “To Sense the Light, You Must Close Your Eyes”, with the works of the painter Kristi Kongi and printmaker Mare Vint, opens in the large gallery of the Tartu Art House. At first glance, the handwriting of these too very individual authors seems almost contradictory. Mare Vint’s metaphysical, nearly black-and-white landscapes demand that their discreet tension be quietly contemplated. Kristi Kongi, however, yanks the viewer into her endlessly colourful world, where deep dark tonal gradients are interspersed with pastel variations and, by including the space surrounding the works of art, she emphasises the comprehensive nature of her oeuvre.
“A Garden of Change” by Kersti Rattus
On Friday, 11 November at 6 p.m. Kersti Rattus opens her solo exhibition “A Garden of Change” in the small gallery of Tartu Art House. The exhibition is an insight into the artist’s recent explorations and an overview of the path the artist has taken in her career. The works in the exhibition are in one way or another dedicated to the life of plants. Among the new works, however, there is also a painting from an earlier time, when human relationships seemed to determine the entire existence, and a textile print recalling the long-ago times.
“Liberated Machines” by Erik Alalooga
On Friday, 11 November at 6 p.m. Erik Alalooga opens his solo exhibition “Liberated Machines” in the monumental gallery of Tartu Art House. The artist invites everyone to bathe in an undulating sound array because the monumental gallery is filled with acoustic machines. Large and small, acoustic and amplified, soft and aggressive, fast and slow objects allow you to experience different sound patterns in an unlimited range of combinations.
Exhibition “Is There Hope For Lovely Creatures?”
“Is There Hope For Lovely Creatures?”, asks the opening exhibition of Tallinn Art Hall’s Lasnamäe Pavilion, which focuses on the inner world of women, the most fragile yet bravest members of society.
