There is no war, yet someone hurts my heart every day.
Angela Soop: “Current exhibition serves as the first one from the cycle consisting of four parts. The cycle arises and changes according to the surrounding and inner state. The meanings of the words “war” and “peace” depend on the ways of interpretation and the context. While preparing for this exhibition I was unable to foresee the situation today. Concepts have become more reverse, yet the lights seem to have turned down a bit. Borders become vague, volumes coincide and transform. The exhibition is based on perceiving the states and observing various influencing factors.
From Saturday, 26 September Arne Maasik’s solo exhibition “Individual Spaces” can be visited in the large gallery of the Tartu Art House.
The exhibition consists of Maasik’s latest central photo series “Geometry and Metaphysics”, “Limen” and “Tangles”. All the images are displayed in Tartu for the first time and the images of “Tangles” have been specially selected from previously unreleased materials. The series are brought together by Elnara Taidre’s essay “Individual Spaces”.
Taidre writes: “The general dynamism of Maasik’s oeuvre could be described as movement from depiction of nature that strives for order towards the depiction of ideal architecture. The leafless trunks and branches of “Tangles” on the black-and-white photos have an aesthetic effect and are even graphical in nature.

In August, Kohila Symposium celebrated both the 20th symposium and 20 years passing from the first anagama-kiln constructions. The unusual format brought together 12 Estonian artists selected from the previous symposium participants. Artists created large format works in their home studios or in the facilities of ARS Ceramics Centre in Tallinn.
Maria Kapajeva’s solo exhibition “When the World Blows Up, I Hope to Go Down Dancing” will be on display at Art Hall Gallery from 17 September. The artist addresses the social pressures that accompany women throughout their lives and looks for ways to confront them. The curator of the exhibition is Siim Preiman.
The exhibition will open on Wednesday, 16 September at 5 pm and will run until 8 November.
Traditional gender roles are often considered as predestined as the laws of nature, rather than the co-creation of society. This is exactly why they are so persistent. According to the most common stereotypes, women are expected to stay young forever on the one hand and to become mothers on the other. Such roles are reiterated in education, media and culture. But what happens if you don’t want to take on either role?
On September 19th at 4pm KORDON Container Gallery opens Diana Tamane's video installation “Letters from Mum III, Mõšanin”. Opening will be followed by artist talk moderated by curator Laura Toots (EKKM). This will be our last exhibition this summer. You are very much invited!
The new video installation “Mõšan” by Diana Tamane continues on the theme of Diana's family. Diana's mother, long-haul truck driver, reflects in a letter to her daughter on the relationship between man, technology and nature: “Well, daughter, here's the story of our busy truckers' life ... On the night of May 5th, we stopped in La Junquera for a nine hour rest. It's that Catalan town on the border, between Spain and France which I have told you about. That’s were we have our "mandatory refuelling" before we leave Spain. We often spend the night there because in France stopping at night before Lyon is risky - in the morning very likely the fuel tank would be empty. It's about 1200 litres of fuel we would be responsible for. We took off at dawn.
Open from Saturday, September 12 from noon.
Artists: Julian Charrière, Iggy Malmborg, Eduardo Navarro, Jaakko Pallasvuo, Jeremy Shaw, Karl Sjölund, Martta Tuomaala, Ana Vaz, Kristina Õllek
Curators: Marten Esko, Vanina Saracino and Lea Vene
"Tiger in Space" sets out to address and think about the resourceful and at times oversaturated notion of energy.
At this year's Design Night, glass artists will discuss design and art in the collective work "Piece of Cake". "Piece of Cake" is made in a unique technique, typical of Estonian glass art "pâte de verre" (or "glass paste" in French). This gentle, ultra-thin, sculptural, or sugar-like smelting technique, is so common among the glass artists that we can safely speak of the emergence of the school in the second half of the 1990s. Mare Saar's first pâte de verre works date back to 1995.
The artists participating in the exhibition want to highlight the pâte de Verre technique also because this fragile broken glass has aroused a lot of interest among the audience. People are often puzzled by the story - "how does it all come together" and "is it really glass?". In addition to creating a beautiful artifact, artists hope to create positive emotions in human viewers - to design the viewer's experience on the border of art and real-life and to show more closely the symbiosis of design and art.
The exhibition “Like Stones in Flowing Water” will be opened in Tallinn City Gallery on Thursday, 10 September at 6 pm. It speaks of the consistent yet admirably changeable work of three artists, which is simultaneously both modest and powerfully self-assertive. Curator Tamara Luuk has invited these three particular artists to make a joint exhibition, indicating that poetry, intuition, beauty and harmony also walk their sunny path today, refusing to let it grow wild.
Tiiu Pallo-Vaik, Naima Neidre and Ingrid Allik, the three artists at this exhibition, are like colourful, polished stones that become ever more radiant in the passing of time. Obstructing or redirecting this passage with their physicality is out of the question – they are too fragile. Also unthinkable is being randomly rolled here and there by the flowing water.
