Grandmother's birthday by Jass Kaselaan
Jass Kaselaan will open his personal exhibition Grandmother's Birthday in Draakon gallery at 5pm on Tuesday, December 17th, 2019.   "When I was a child then my grandmother taught me never to stroke a rat backwards - it can get freightened and become angry. We lived in a small house full of rats. On cold winter nights some of the rats climbed to grandmother's bed to look for warmth. I cannot remember grandmother's last birthday; I know that she got flowers as a present."   This is Jass Kaselaan's short introduction full of imagery to his new exhibition where the artist presents a large-scale installation applied to both the walls and the floor of Draakon gallery. The staged installation is filling up the whole gallery space as it is typical to Kaselaan's artwork, characterized by precision of details and powerful, robust form next to the paradoxically apparent lyricism.

Opening of the exhibition is on the 12th of december at 18.00 Buoyed by the winds of perestroika in the late 1980s, Siim-Tanel Annus (1960) appeared on the international scene as a unique performance artist. During the profound stagnation years, he created mystical semi-secret performances in his garden. The most famous was Passages (1987), which was accompanied by Ariel Lagle’s original music. Today, the artist has moved on from the performances that brought him fame as an artist in the past, and deals primarily with pictorial creation, which also inspired his past performances. The exhibition juxtaposes the documentation of his performances with his graphic art from various decades, including the present. Curator: Liis Kibuspuu (Tallinn University).
Bыставка «Воздействие слова: инвалидность, коммуникация, разрыв»
The international exhibition of contemporary art, “Disarming Language: Disability, Communication, Rupture” will open at Tallinn Art Hall on 13 December. Works by 13 artists were selected by curators Christine Sun Kim and Niels Van Tomme. The exhibition will be produced in cooperation with the Office of the Chancellor of Justice and the ARGOS Centre for Art and Media in Brussels.   The curators consider it important to break down the biases surrounding disability and have therefore selected works by disabled artists exhibited at the top galleries of the world, from the Guggenheim to the Tate. “By exploring the wide-ranging practices of disabled artists, we ended up seeing a common thread of artists and artworks unpacking ideas relating to language and communication. The ways in which language frames disability both positively, as a way to connect and make visible, and negatively, by exclusion and erasure, are manifold,” explain Kim and Van Tomme.   
Эскиз к фильму «Поля любви» (режиссер В.Куйк), 1984
The opening of the exhibition is on the 13th of December at 18.00.   The exhibition The Old Man and the Musical Score is a little gem composed of the works of Kaarel Kurismaa that are relatively unknown or never seen before. Amongst his artwork, which as a rule does not distinguish between mainstreams, days, and centuries, his oil paintings are the ones that can be dated the most clearly; his fun side is depicted in his collages and his basic truths binding his multi-faceted creation become apparent in his drafts and sketches. The visitor is greeted by an eternal retrospective love column with majestic monumentality and soul-stirring symphony of detail.   Open until the 1st of March 2020.   Additional information: Temnikova & Kasela Gallery

The exhibition "Metamorphosis" will open on the 6th of December at 17.00. ”Metamorphoses are changes, distortions, transitions. Something turns into something. Paintings depict trivial living environments and symbols of eternity. This exhibition is a retrospective and ironic illustration of time running its course. /---/  What gets left behind from us after our physical demise? A lifeless sculpture? A metaphysical reflection of things that we have touched? A bodyless being on Facebook? A play with a moment and with eternity, sad-ironic, meaningless-transient.
