Tim Daniel Suvi & Anu Antsi “Still Alive”* at Galerii Metropol.
For the first exhibition of the year, Metropol gallery has invited two very different artists at the beginning of their creative careers, who did not know each other before, to collaborate on joint exhibition.. Both deal with complex situations in the human mind – concerns with mental health, how it effects soul and body, and dealing with the consequences. The title of the exhibition suggests that a positive outcome is possible and that art may even play a decisive role in this.
Tim Daniel is a Russian born in Estonia who chose Suvi (“summer” in English) as his last name. At the moment, he is a sculpture and installation student at the Estonian Academy of Arts. He uses art mainly for therapeutic purposes (he compares his subconscious creative process to taking out the garbage from the soul).
In Metropol he presents a set of works summarizing a long and difficult chapter in the artist’s life.
“I learned how delicate the human psyche can be. I could no longer distinguish between reality and delusional fantasy. I fell into a hell of my own making. I’ve climbed out of there. I’m still alive.”
Expressively symbolistic paintings and sculptures form an assemblage visualizing the opposite extremes.
Anu Antsi is only a 10th grade student of Tallinn Art Gymnasium, but she has made an artistically mature choice to use the best tools of conceptual art to address her fears that have been paralyzing her life. Her photo- and video installation is a new version of her graduation work in Lihula School of Music and Art, She associates fears with uncontrollable repetitive dreams that follow you to the wakefulness and begin to determine your functioning in normal situations.
We invite you to inspect the exhibition and compare your own mental health situation to the ones on display.
