The exhibition A-tishoo, A-tishoo, We All Fall Down by CCA
We welcome you to the opening of the exhibition on November 1 at 7pm.   The exhibition A-tishoo, A-tishoo, We All Fall Down deals with dread and hopelessness. It reflects a self-destructive situation where the man-made world is turning on us in an increasingly forceful way. With the participating artists of the exhibition, a journey is created, guided by uncertainty about what lies ahead.   For the first time, the Estonian Centre for Contemporary Art (CCA) is curating collectively to bring together different experiences and ways of thinking, to save resources and reduce overproduction. The exhibition includes the artists Ivana Bašić, Pakui Hardware, Anu Juurak, Jussi Kivi, Raul Keller, Johanna Maria Parv, Hanna Samoson, Emilija Škarnulytė, Peeter Ulas, Brit Pavelson and Sissela Jensen, Aaloe-Ader-Flo-Künnap-Soosalu. Events accompanying the exhibition are created by Mare Tralla and the Üle Prahi group.
Kristina Norman
"Lighter Than Woman“ is a poetical-documentary performance about overcoming the gravity of life in direct and indirect meaning. Norman observes Italy's only female astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti as a person who has overcome gravity literally by becoming weightless in outer space. In parallel Norman looks at Ukrainian migrant labourers who live in Italy and who have become caregivers for Italian elders and who carry their burden of final years and experience the heaviness literally by lifting them. Nevertheless, these women don’t crumble under the weight of others' lives. On the contrary, they – even without outer space – can overcome gravity. How it is possible and what role work plays in the happiness of human life are the questions examined in Norman’s piece, where documental research, poetical parallels and gravity defying gaze to the difficulties of human life are combined.

Dust balls and lint were sticking to my skin, I tried to wipe them off. Looking outside, I was passing through different environments like courtyard, birthday, plastic greenhouse, the impact of grass, argument of the gardeners, moisture rose, leaning stalks, all year long summerhouse, a piece from somewhere else, the body is inevitable.”

Throughout, his work has been inspired by the desire to explore the mysterious, hidden and uncanny dimensions contained within everyday rituals.    
Jane Remm
Starting from 25 October, the exhibition “Views on a Landscape” by Jane Remm will be open at Tallinn City Gallery. The artist, focusing on the depiction of Estonian forests and, more broadly, landscapes, will present her new works that depict the shadow zones or peripheries of the familiar beautiful landscape. The exhibition is curated by Siim Preiman. The exhibition will open on Thursday, 24 October at 6pm and it will remain open until 15 December.   Jane Remm is interested in the presentation of landscapes in culture and how they have been designed over the years. In the exhibition “Views on a Landscape”, Remm continues contemplating the relations between humankind and the landscape, this time stepping off the roadside and deeper into the woods. The exhibited works could be divided in two – those that depict the meeting points of different artificial and natural landscape components, the tree stumps as legacy trees that had come to their natural end.

"Time Traveller" by Johanna Mudist
23.10.2019 to 09.11.2019
On Wednesday, 23 October at 17:30 a new exhibition of oil paintings and miniature drawings Time Traveller by Johanna Mudist will open in the cellar rooms of Galerii Noorus.   The visitor will be involved in a short time travel and will get an overview of topics that the artist has been working in recent years.   The display includes pieces, which are a part of the master thesis project that the artist defended in 2017, discussing time, place and body. The paintings are characterised by large format and infinite perspective. Colours used by the artist mediate the deformation and blending of perceptions, which she has experienced on a long hike. Time Traveller can also be associated with the main topic of the artist's first personal exhibition Waiters (2018)  - the portrayal of waiting as a temporal experience.

POSTEDEN is a poetic spectacle, an emotional reflection of mundane situations. Clothing is seen as the material embodiment of post-Edenic spirit: illustrating dystopia and abstracting the body. The destiny of clothed bodies is to accept the unnatural situation as the new norm. The order that relieves the fear of the unknown is artificial. Clothing both conceals and uncovers the body and mind. Disdain and love express the longing for unity. The stable state of satisfaction is unachievable, feeding the yearning for change. The cycle of life is repeating, yet on the individual level, every recurrence is a new experience. POSTEDEN is 4th episode in the series of performative fashion installations by Laivi, following “Mystifying Mundane” (27.10.18), “Long Live Trashed Bodies” (16.3.18) and “When I Was a Girl & Life Was Yet Ahead” (20.10.17). The series experiments with presenting materials as body- coverings both on and off the body. The atmosphere is created together with movement, light and sound.
