“Black-White” by Jüri Kass
“Black-White” by Jüri Kass
22.08.2022 to 17.09.2022
Jüri Kass will open his personal exhibition Black-White in Draakon gallery at 18:00 on Monday, August 22, 2022. Exhibition will be open until September 17, 2022.  With his current exhibition, Jüri Kass continues with the minimalistic means of expression that he has been presenting in various techniques at several personal exhibitions. The artist chooses the most simple way for creating a visual trace while translating this „elementary particle of a picture” in various ways – and at the present exhibition, this elementary particle will be served by the hole in paper.  Jüri Kass (b. 1956) has graduated from the department of industrial art at the Estonian State Art Institute in 1979. He has worked as a graphic designer, painter, graphic artist and lecturer. He has participated in exhibitions since 1974. Kass has held about ten personal exhibitions (posters, drawings, paintings, graphic art). 
Group show “On the other side of Võru”
Opening of a new group show „On the other side of Võru“ on the 19th of August at 5 p.m in Vana-Võromaa Museum and Art Gallery.  Grop show „On the other side of Võru“ that will be opened during Võru city’s 238th birthday, is a combination of ten diferent Estonian artists, whose small world has been brought together through irony – this time in Võru. Again and again a good old question rises: „Is grass greener on the other side?“ and how much it matters, where we are from and where we’re going. Is there some place, where art feels better? Or is the mundane world even connected to the internal creation?  The unique approach of this colourful and opposing group can be seen through psychedelic punch needle rugs, digital paintings inspired by street art and utopia, vivid and masterful oil paintings, captivating audiovisual, surprising sculptures and are-you-kidding-me graphics.
 Merike Estna “Soil will not contain our love”
Merike Estna’s solo exhibition “Soil will not contain our love” will be on view from August 19 to November 27, 2022. The exhibition has been conceived as a mini-retrospective of the artist’s work, showing a series of new works as well as several works that will be shown in Estonia for the first time. The latter include Estna’s large-scale painting “The Ocean of Endangered Ages”, created for the 2019 Moderna Museet Malmö exhibition, and the hand-woven, large-scale rug “The House of the Tragic Poet”, commissioned for a solo exhibition at Bosse & Baum Gallery in London in 2021 among several others.
Mare Vint. Stone Bridge
Mare Vint. Stone Bridge
12.08.2022 to 02.09.2022
Opens on August 12 at 15.00 Association of Estonian Printmakers’ exhibition at ARS Project Space August 12 – September 2, 2022. The exhibition introduces the works of Mare Vint (1942-2020) through multiple decades. The lithographs created by Mare Vint regard nature as architecture. Forming chaotic nature into abstract stylised shapes, her work draws a connection between nature and human-made architecture. It’s as if her work sanctified the mundane. Mare Vint’s pictures are ruled by orderly structures. Everybody knows that all living things have been constructed by twenty amino acids. It is a building block with phenomenal creative prowess, allowing life to multiply itself into many diverse species – this is the astonishing work of nature. It is humans’ biggest and most remarkable creative acts that distinguish us from wild nature – we’ve made capsules out of stone, metal, glass, and concrete. Building blocks and modules multiply in factories faster than they do in nature.

3.08.–29.09.2022. From 3rd August the Harju County Library will host the Exhibition of Artistic Bookbinding “Scripta manent VI”. The exhibition is organised by the Estonian Association of Designer Bookbinders. The exhibition is a continuation of the international exhibition competition held last year in the ARS Project room, which was attended by 130 artists from 15 countries. “Scripta manent” (meaning ‘written words remain’ in Latin) is held in Tallinn every five years. Introducing the very best selection of Estonian culture to the world wide audience has been the focal idea of organisers right from the very first exhibition in 1995. Among texts that have been bound earlier, mention may be made of poetry by beloved Estonian authors Doris Kareva and Jaan Kaplinski, music lecture materials from one of Estonia’s most iconic composers Veljo Tormis, an anthology of poetry by young Estonian writers and fairytales created by Estonian children.

Exhibition “Chronicles of Trap”
Exhibition “Chronicles of Trap”
03.08.2022 to 04.10.2022
Link to the exhibition: https://post-gallery.online/ Opening: 03/08/22 6pm (EET) Open until: 04/10/22 The island of Trap was isolated enough to be a perfect habitat for a number of endemic plants as well as a haven for visiting marine mammals and birds. A textbook example of island biogeography, it is a good starting point for stories from the history of conservation biology and biodiversity in the anthropocene. The only human inhabitant of the island was bryologist Loro Moron. Named Lorenzo by his parents and 'loco' by the international scientific community, the eccentric yet brilliant Loco Loro Moron spent 6 years living on Trap until it was destroyed in a volcanic eruption of Krakatoan magnitude on 27 July 1998.

Both films are characterized by the filmmakers' personal (family) ties with their subjects. The films will be followed by a discussion with the filmmakers. In parallel to the film programme the video work ‘Double Exposure’ by Ingel Vaikla (EE/BE) filmed in Slavutych, Ukraine in 2019 can be viewed in the Kordon Container Gallery. Donations for the support of war refugees in Ukraine will be collected during the festival.
