“Slow Manoeuvres”
The Youth Exhibition of 18th Tallinn Print Triennial

On Friday 25th of February at 18.00 The Youth Exhibition of 18th Tallinn Print Triennial “Slow Manoeuvres” will be opened on the first floor of the Contemporary Art Museum of Estonia (EKKM). The exhibition will remain open until 11th of March.

The Youth Exhibition is the satellite event of Tallinn Print Triennial traditionally curated and organised by young artists. In this edition the main focus of the exhibition is on artists that use printmaking but alongside them also artists whose practice varies from textile to text.

The current exhibition concentrates on those young artists who, in their work, deal with slow and sustainable practices or with sustaining identity and humanic values in a world with rising levels of anxiety. Thoughts about coping with the present and questioning the possibility of the future are apparent in their work through the contacts they have with themselves and their surroundings.

“Slow Manoeuvres” are slow and thoughtful movements – takeoff with a notion of the importance of the journey. Artists are keeping their focus close to them. They create from and recreate what already exists and, through fragility, small narratives and insignificant techniques seek ways to move on.

Curators: Riin Maide (EKA Contemporary Art, MA) and Brit Kikas (EKA Contemporary Art, MA)

Artists: EKA Master’s students in Contemporary Art Sophie Durand, Lily Marleen Bloodshed, Maria Izabella Lehtsaar, Rodion Furs; Master of Contemporary Art Jose Aldemar Muños; Master of Textiles Ingrid Helena Pajo; EKA Graphics’ students Ella-Mai Matsina, Merilyn Lempu; and Saara Liis Jõerand

The author of the graphic design is Cristopher Siniväli and the text editor is Kristiine Kikas.
