During the past three years, I have been flying on 65 days, taken off and landed 138 times in total. My flights have been delayed, cancelled, changed, overbooked. I have been flying in an almost empty airplane, with bad weather, with good weather, during the pandemic.  
Anna Škodenko “Stranger at Home”
Anna Škodenko will open her personal exhibition “Stranger at Home” in Draakon gallery at 6pm on Wednesday, June 9th, 2021. The exhibition will be open until July 3rd, 2021.   The artist comments on her current exposition: “You are looking through the large gallery window and make the decision to step inside of a home that is unknown for you – the space of my exhibition.   The phrase “stranger at home” can refer to a stranger in somebody else’s home. It can also mean an alteration in the perception of the external world, transforming close things to something distant. It can allude to a poetic sensation of crossing the borders and facing the unknown. Or it can just happen that at home one feels stranger than in foreign countries. I would like to leave you enough space here to wander towards whatever direction that feels accurate.

The exhibition will remain open until July 18.   The exhibition Letters from a foreign mind has been shaped by both the internal and external changes EKKM has undergone in the past year and a half, as well as contemplating on what is valued in our society and themes like scarcity, neglect and care. What is remembered, what is forgotten and what gets written into art history?

Krista Leesi “Verbarium”
12.06.2021 to 03.10.2021
The Tartu Art Museum is pleased to present the solo exhibition “Verbarium” by the textile artist and designer Krista Leesi. Visitors are greeted by a world of patterns inspired mainly by Tartu but also by Paris and Tallinn.   Krista Leesi’s works are characterised by wordplay that combines language and visuals in a thrilling manner. Her interventions offer new and pointed meanings to familiar objects, images and environments. The exhibition presents new interpretations to the Leaning Building of Barclay de Tolly, where the museum is located, the two-story sheds, or “kallerei”, that are so characteristic of the city, the graffiti covered traffic signs of Tartu and Paris and other elements from urban environments.

Alar Tuul
From Saturday, 29 May the joint exhibition “Island of a Thousand Eyes” by Mirjam Hinn and Alar Tuul is open in the large gallery of the Tartu Art House.   Hinn is abstract and dynamic while Tuul is more powerful and brutal, even forthright. The idea of the joint exhibition is based on a fiction that is used to introduce numerous stories and abstract interpretations about our society and subconsciousness. This means that the dialogue of the artists creates a novel and idealistic utopia. The exhibition offers an original glimpse at the post-technological society where ideas about nature and artificial structures have become intertwined. A story of the contemporary society is told using a motif of an abstract island.
