„Ghosts of Impossible Present“
State of Concept is proud to announce the opening of the group exhibition Ghosts of Impossible Present, on Friday the 31st of May at 18:30, curated by Solvita Krese, organised by Latvian Centre for Contemporary Art.  In the exhibition Ghosts of Impossible Present, artists from the Baltic states address the ghosts of our shared ecosystems – the traces left by ecological disasters and wars in the environment, plants and creatures. For a long time, ecological concerns in the Baltic region have been overshadowed by geopolitical problems, imperialist aggression, the polarization of society, and social inequality, among other issues. Yet the undeniable impact of human activity on the environment and the climate have shifted perceptions. Ecological problems are now recognized as pressing political issues, closely tied to our survival and the future of our ecosystems. 
Marge Monko „Do I Know What It Is, From Which None Can Escape“ Düsseldorfis
‘Do I Know What It Is, From Which None Can Escape’ brings together a series of photographs depicting lost gloves on the streets of Tallinn, and the found photos of human hands. The so-called ‘gloves’ season’ in Estonia lasts relatively long, from October to April. Especially towards spring, one can notice many lost gloves on, which lie on the ground, or are placed in a visible position by passersby. Gloves are immediately connected to hands, protecting them from cold or dirt, and there’s a trace of human touch in the gloves. A single glove on the street signifies loss but also care, especially when observing the creative and sometimes humorous ways that passersby have displayed them so the owners can find them again. The photos of gloves and vintage images of hands are a kind of interplay of the notions of lost and found, and of precarity and care.

The starting point of this exhibition is the garment as a piece of clothing that conveys a feeling or a condition; that is, recording emotions, carrying and commuting narratives. Fashion as an item of clothing, a storyteller and a work of art.

Jass Kaselaane isiknäitus „Isa ja poeg“
Wednesday, June 12, at 6pm, Jass Kaselaan’s exhibition Father and Son will open in Hobusepea gallery. The exhibition will remain open until July 8, 2024.  Jass Kaselaan: “The exhibition Father and Son is comprised of portrait busts and graphic drawings inspired by the friendship my son and I share. For the exhibition, I sculpted portrait busts of myself. I drew my son. To reflect the mysterious, unfathomably layered inner world of a child, I depicted him as different vessels. The metaphor of a ship came to the aid of expressing the hopes and fears associated with the child growing.”

The material-led group exhibition "Objects or Things" opens on May 30th at 18:00 in the Krulli quarter. Objects or Things brings together ten master students from the Estonian Academy of Art's new Craft Studies program, presenting works in various materials, including glass, metal, stone, textile and ceramics. The presented works stay on the border between objects and things and question the importance of functionality with their nature, combining different craft disciplines. The group members position themselves in between the worlds of art, design, and craft, brought together by a deep interest in the nature and roles that different materials have and carry. Participants: Sofiya Babiy, Iohan Figueroa, Rait Lõhmus, Juulia Aleksandra Mikson, Katariin Mudist, Maarja Mäemets, Alyona Movko-Mägi, Kati Saarits, Hannah Segerkrantz, and Elias Sormanen.
