Gloria Hao’s and Madlen Hirtentreu’s exhibition “Lost Future Figure. oh whistle, and i'll come to you, my friend”
Gloria Hao’s and Madlen Hirtentreu’s exhibition “Lost Future Figure. oh whistle, and i'll come to you, my friend” in Draakon gallery will be open from November 24, 2021.  l An old nun steps out of the abbey after years of isolation. Perhaps she is on a mission. She meets two strangers. What does one see and think of the world outside the walls of the abbey after years of living in one religious utopia? What doubts does she meet in herself and what can she share with those two strangers?
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.

Uno Roosvalt's anniversary exhibition “My Studio”
Uno Roosvalt's anniversary exhibition “My Studio” will be opened in Hobusepea gallery at 6pm on Wednesday, November 3rd, 2021. Exhibition will be open until November 22, 2021.    Uno Roosvalt turned 80 in August this year. Current exhibition comprising Roosvalt's drawings is one way to celebrate this important landmark in the artist's life. Uno tends to lead his life with a modest flow – and his loving gaze accompanies the various subjects of his artwork, whether it be Nordic nature, coastal landscapes, evergreen bushes or cats and dogs. And there have always been cats and dogs in the Roosvalt family's home.    Artist's studio is an artist's home. It is the birthplace of the artist's artwork. Even when the works leave the studio, there will be a memory of the space in the artworks as the space in the artist's head where the creative ideas were born. Yearning for one's studio is a part of every artwork's charm.

Henri Hütt “Consequences Without a Cause”
The exhibition is a combination of different setting with a predetermined spatial order. There is light, there is shadow. There are sources, there is spectacle. Does there have to be a logical link between these entities? Is everything that looks the same, actually the same?   The Moon also reflects light as if it was its own…   The staged space allows visitors to experience states of relief from the causes and consequences and to sense the moments where the overestimation of understanding has passed. Something that initially seemed logical and intellectually not demanding, becomes increasingly unfounded on closer inspection.   How to display black light; how to measure love; how to move in a way that the shadow stays in place?
