Ulvi Haagensen “Home Exhibition”
Ulvi Haagensen Kodunäitus / Home Exhibition Lembitu 6-6, Tallinn 8.–10.01.2022 Please register HERE There are many ways to make an exhibition at home. You could paint the walls white, clear away all traces of everyday life and set up the artwork as you might in a white cube gallery. Or you could set up your work in and around existing everyday objects. Or you could not really do anything and simply invite people to your place and call it an exhibition. Art can after all, be whatever we decide it will be.
Raoul Kurvitz "Twnety girls with buckets in their hands" 168 X 200 cm. Oil on canvas. 2021 a. Repro: Stansilav Stephasko
On December 28, Tuesday at 6PM is the opening of Raoul Kurvitz’s personal exhibition based on his latest creations “The Garden of Beauty without Edge and End”.   Beauty as a concept has been over- and underestimated throughout history, just as beauty standards have fluctuated from wall to wall. In the end, beauty is always a subjective rating: there is no universal nor godlike beauty. Ultimately, beauty is what we attribute to being universal or godlike in our current time and cultural space, or on the other hand, not at all.   However, beauty is a feeling to a certain extent. Often it’s connected to sublimity, sometimes to unavailability or negligence, but on rare times it’s even terrifying.

Kaisa Maasik's exhibition “Blow Hot and Cold”
Kaisa Maasik's personal exhibition “Blow Hot and Cold” will be open in Hobusepea gallery from Wednesday, November 24. Exhibition will be open until December 13, 2021.    The saying “blow hot and cold” expresses ambivalence, alternating between two states. In her artwork presented at the current exhibition, Kaisa Maasik examines depicting of (alternation of) emotions.    When it comes to languages, expressions about moods tend to involve opposite colours: for instance the saying “see red” means the same as “turn blue with anger” in Estonian, and yet, in both languages, one becomes “green with envy”. Various studies have also proved that human face is changing undertones depending on a specific emotion (Benitez-Quiroz, F., Srinivasan, R., Martinez, A. M. (2018) Facial color is an efficient mechanism to visually transmit emotion.

Tõnis Saadoja „Oktoober. Roosakashall“. Õli, lõuend. 2021. 195 x 150 cm
Tõnis Saadoja’s exhibition “September, October, … ” opens in the WIELS Project Room, Brussels. The exhibition opening takes place on December 1 at 18.   In the painting series “September, October, …” the artist’s focus lies equally on two aspects – how to portray an unfunctional environment and how to paint a picture that is primarily about painting?   “I’m interested in the poetic dimension of an image and the conditionality inherent in the painting process provides one possibility to amplify this,” says Saadoja. “Painting is, first and foremost, a potential that may lead to new connections and meanings. It can also lead back to old routes and there’s nothing wrong with that either.
