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. The number of correct interpretations is equal to the number of stories constructed by the viewers.”

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. Even the reprints of the product were made later.  
Exhibition “Home of Good Thoughts”
Exhibition “Home of Good Thoughts”
12.12.2020 to 30.01.2021
The corona crisis forced a lot of us to spend weeks stuck inside our homes. Being in a small and isolated space 24/7 became our reality, a tiny world of our own. Being confined made us anxious and the only way out was the computer screen or our imagination. In social media, jokes about holiday trips to the balcony, gourmet trips to the kitchen or spa-weekends in the bathroom circulated widely. The intimate and limited space became so familiar and so thoroughly felt that being in it acquired a new kind of depth. Just like we can travel in our minds, we can sit on our sofas and imagine that the flat is, indeed, our home town: the living room table is like a city square with busy family members around it, the square is framed by facades of various buildings, convenient roads lead to the residential suburb, restaurant, spa...
