Kirjastus Lugemik osaleb 21.–24. aprillil Brüsselis viiendat korda toimuval alternatiivsel kunstimessil Poppositions. Messil tuleb esmaesitlusele Eesti kunstniku Marge Monko performance “Don’t Wind It Up, Turn It On” ning samanimeline trükis.

Monko performance “Don’t Wind It Up, Turn It On” lähtub iha konstruktsioonidest reklaamfotodel, mille stiil küll aja jooksul varieerub, ent mille semantiline tähendus on jäänud samaks. Nais- ja meesnäitleja kannavad ette erinevaid tekste 1970. ja 1980. aastate käekellade reklaamidest, mängides samas läbi ka reklaamfotodelt pärit käte kompositsioonid.

Tegemist on Monko esimese performance-teosega, mida Poppositions’il esitavad koreograafid Kathryn Vickers ja Sandy Williams, teose tehniliste lahenduste eest vastutab Isjtar. Performance’it on võimalik näha üks kord päevas. Lisaks sellele eksponeerib Monko fotoseeriat ning uut trükist. Viimane isaldab performance’i täismahus käsikirja ja käekellareklaame taasesitavaid fotosid. Raamatu on kujundanud Indrek Sirkel ning see on kolmas Lugemiku poolt välja antud Marge Monko trükis.

Lugemiku esmakordset kunstimessil osalemist kureerib Laura Toots, kelle koostatud projekti valis välja rahvusvaheline žürii. Messil osaleb kokku 25 erinevat galeriid ja projektiruumi enam kui 50 kunstnikuga 21 erinevast riigist.

Poppositions on Euroopa alternatiivsetest kunstimessidest üks eesrindlikumaid, mis tutvustab väikeseid, mitte ainult müügile keskenduvaid galeriisid ja on platvormiks värsketele kunstnikupositsioonidele. Poppositions toimub samal ajal ühe Euroopa suurima kunstimessi Art Brussels’iga, kus eksponeeritakse samuti Marge Monko teoseid Ungari galerii Ani Molnar boksis. Art Brussels messil osalevad ka Temnikova & Kasela Galerii ning EKKM.

Poppositionsi raames on La Houle’i projektiruumi poolt organiseeritud Reading Room’is väljas ka valik Lugemiku kirjastatud raamatuid. Esindatud on järgmiste kunstnike teosed: Tuukka Kaila, Mari Laanemets, Paul Kuimet, Marge Monko, Tõnis Saadoja, Anu Vahtra, Johan Tali, Johanna Jõekalda, Siim Tuksam, Flo Kasearu, kadrinoormets, Anna-Stina Treumund ja Merike Estna.

Marge Monko (s. 1976) on Tallinnas elav ja töötav kunstnik, kes töötab fotograafia, video ja installatsiooniga. Enamik tema teoseid on inspireeritud ajaloolistest kujutistest ning mõjutatud psühhoanalüüsi, feminismi ja visuaalkultuuri teooriatest. Monko on esinenud isikunäitustega galeriides Tallinnas, Helsingis ja Budapestis ning Viini moodsa kunsti muuseumis (Mumok) ja on osalenud mitmetel mainekatel rahvusvahelistel näitustel. Marge Monko on Ida- ja Kesk-Euroopa kunstiauhinna Henkel Art.Award 2012 laureaat, aastatel 2013–2015 osales ta stuudioprogrammis HISKis (Higher Institute for Contemporary Art) Gentis, Belgias ning 2015. aastal ISCP (International Studio & Curatorial Program) residentuuris New Yorgis.

Lugemik participates at Poppositions art fair with the new work by Marge Monko

Lugemik Publishing is participating at Poppositions, an alternative art fair taking place for the fifth time in Brussels during 21–24 April. Making its premiere at the fair is the performance “Don’t Wind It Up, Turn It On” by the Estonian artist Marge Monko, as well as the publication of the same name.

Monko’s performance “Don’t Wind It Up, Turn It On” is based on the construction of desire used in advertising photography – a genre in which stylistic means have changed over time, but its semantic meaning has always remained the same. Two actors – female and male – read sentences from different wrist watch advertisements from the 1970s and 1980s, and re-enact the compositions of hands used in these advertisements.

“Don’t Wind It Up, Turn It On” is Monko’s first performance piece which will be performed at Poppositions once a day by choreographers Kathryn Vickers and Sandy Williams, technical assistance is provided by Isjtar. The performance is accompanied by a photographic series and a publication which contains the complete script of the performance as well as the re-staged photographs of the used advertisements. The book is designed by Indrek Sirkel, and it is the third publication by Marge Monko published by Lugemik.

Lugemik’s first time participation at an art fair is curated by Laura Toots, whose project was selected by an international jury. A total of 25 exhibitors of different galleries and project spaces with more than 50 artists from 21 different countries are participating at the fair.

In addition, a selection of Lugemik’s publications will be on display during Poppositions in the Reading Room organized by La Houle project space. Books by the following artists are presented: Tuukka Kaila, Mari Laanemets, Paul Kuimet, Marge Monko, Tõnis Saadoja, Anu Vahtra, Johan Tali, Johanna Jõekalda, Siim Tuksam, Flo Kasearu, kadrinoormets, Anna-Stina Treumund and Merike Estna.

Poppositions is one of the most progressive alternative art fairs in Europe introducing non-profit initiatives next to commercial galleries and providing a platform for new artists’ positions. Poppositions will take place at the same time as Art Brussels, one of the largest art fairs in Europe, where Marge Monko’s work is also exhibited by Ani Molnar Gallery.

Marge Monko (born 1976) is an artist living and working in Tallinn, Estonia. Monko works with photography, video and installation.

She has participated in a number of group exhibitions in Estonia and abroad. In 2012, she was awarded the Henkel.Art.Award for Eastern and Central European artists.
