Tallinna Kunstihoone galerii
On Thursday, April 27, exhibition “On the other side, from other things” by Riin Maide will open in Tallinn Art Hall Gallery. Exhibited installations focus on the potential of absent spaces and the temporary beauty.
“On other sides and other things” is a visual exploration of places that don’t actually exist. Using materials such as paper and fabric, for four days Maide creates (and recreates) an environment through which spatial footnotes can be experienced.
“With every good spectacle, I have almost always been more fascinated by what lies behind it. The romantic in me finds the nostalgia and sad beauty of abandonment in empty storefronts, despite the cruelty of capitalism. A disappearing moment that I would like to capture.”
Riin Maide (1997) is an artist and scenographer who lives and works in Tallinn. In her practice, she deals with memory and presence through playful installations and staged environments. Her work can be often characterised as site-specific, ephemeral and reliant on graphic imagery. In addition to exhibitions, she also works as a curator, performer. She has also participated as stage designer in several performances, both in Estonia and abroad. Maide graduated in 2020 with a degree in graphics at the Estonian Academy of Arts, Faculty of Fine Arts (BA) and is currently studying scenography (MA). In addition, she has studied at the Department of Alternative and Puppet Theater at DAMU in Prague. Riin has received the Edmund Valtman and the Eduard Wiiralt scholarships, as well as the EKA Young Artist Award in 2020 and the title of Newcomer in Graphics in 2022.
