Laurentsius's exhibition “The Group of One”
Laurentsius's personal exhibition “The Group of One” will be open in Draakon gallery from Tuesday, February 2nd, 2021. The exhibition will be open until February 20th, 2021.   The Group of Seven or Algonquin School was a group of Canadian landscape painters in the first half of 20th century. The Estonian counterpart of this practice could be considered painter Konrad Mägi. The Group of One is an exhibition of landscape paintings by Laurentius who got inspiration for completing this series from the nature in Canada. According to the artist, nature has undergone diverse filters during the process of painting. This has resulted in dreamy landscapes from the hidden corners of the memory, reflections, shifts of perception and a solid amount of technical tricks of painting; there is also the feeling as if something suspicious yet good has been consumed.   Laurentsius (b.
Performances at the exhibition “Cut out of life”. Photo: Karolin Nummert
From 30 January, the performance produced by Flo Kasearu in cooperation with Collegium Musicale and Sander Mölder, How Much Longer? Did You Do This? will take place each Saturday at 1.45 pm at the exhibition “Cut Out of Life”.   “How much longer?” is a phrase commonly used by kids when, for instance, they have to sit in a car for a long time and begin to get impatient because they might not know where exactly they are going. “Did you do this?”, on the other hand, is a phrase that is featured, among others, on YouTube videos in which the owners give warnings to their dogs when they have behaved badly. The actual highlights of these clips are the “adorable guilty faces” of the dogs when being confronted. In the specific set-up of the exhibition, these questions are a way to address perpetrators who are causing suffering to their entire family.

Maria Valdma’s solo exhibition “Memory Palace”
How to speak without words? How to remember without recalling? Maria Valdma’s solo exhibition Memory Palace will be open in Tallinn City Gallery from 22 January, showcasing the artist’s latest jewellery made of porcelain, burnt and bleached wood, gold and silver. The curator of the exhibition is Siim Preiman.   NB! Due to the continued spread of the coronavirus in Estonia, the usual festive opening of the exhibition will not take place. The doors of the City Gallery will open to visitors on Friday, 22 January at 11 am. The exhibition will remain open until 28 March.   Unlike fine art, jewellery does not have the luxury of being site-specific. Rather, it must relate to all sorts of garments, personalities and interiors. Yet, jewellery artists are still artists, and their sources of inspiration, subject matter and work process are often deeply personal.
Evi Gailit, Maris Tuuling and Tõnis Kriisa at the Tartu Art House
From Saturday, 23 January the joint exhibition of Evi Gailit, Maris Tuuling and Tõnis Kriisa “Three Is Compromise” will be open in the small gallery of the Tartu Art House.   The exhibition of the two painters and one ceramicist focuses mainly on the human body. It is a collection of shapes that is the most expressive to other people. It can also be endlessly and without exhaustion used in artworks. 70–93% of communication is arguably based on body language but we are still quite illiterate about reading its meaning.   The authors add: “All exhibited works have been made in half a year for this project. Since we have allowed each other to quietly work on our own, we don’t want to also pressure the viewer with our interpretations. We won’t therefore explain our works nor offer a manual for the exhibition.

Erki Kasemets's personal exhibition “Karl Marx in the Animal Kingdom” will be open in Draakon gallery from Tuesday, December 15th, 2020. The most lightweight painting in Estonia can be seen at the exhibition and 37 years later, Erki Kasemets is collaborating with Reet Ohna, the artist of the board game that Kasemets invented in his childhood.   “When I was in the seventh grade, I took part in the competition of designing a board game inspired by the natural world. My invention was awarded the 2nd prize, and the 1st prize was not given out. They decided to place my game into production – before that, the rules were adjusted and simplified; the artist designed the board and the packaging that were depicting animals. The product was titled “Journey in the Animal Kingdom” and tens of thousands of copies of the game were printed.
