The first solo exhibition of the artist Helena Tääker “Surgery of the Soul” will be opened in Vent Space on November 28 at 6 pm.
The curator of the exhibition is Ketlin Käpp.
The exhibition reflects artist Helena Tääker’s self searching and vision of somatic experience in space. Tääker is fascinated by human body and its textures, approaching them through surrealistic viewpoint. The artist compares painting materials with human anatomy, uniting one with the other – canvas as skin, brush bristles as human hair etc. She changes the artwork into something organic like, putting more life into it. While exploring her inner world, the artist also considers it important to create a dialogue with the audience, letting the viewer experience personal somatic contact.
