ASSESSMENT MARATHON 30.04–21.05 at EKA Gallery

Exhibitions of term projects by students in the Faculty of Fine Arts

Mon-Fri at 3–7 PM

30.04 at 6–8 PM

The first three weeks in May bring an opportunity to experience, in an exhibition format, works produced by students in the Faculty of Fine Arts as their term projects: every day there will be a fresh crop of university students’ works on display in the gallery.

Works in the contemporary art, prints, installation, sculpture and painting curricula will be on display, as are works produced for drawing assessments. The purpose of the assessment marathon is to use the gallery environment as a part of the academic process, a place for exhibiting and experimenting, a possibility for students to see their new works in a professional environment. The public will have a chance to experience the newly created art and outcome of the experiments amidst a spring “finals week” atmosphere. On each morning of the marathon, a new exhibition will be installed and in the evening the exhibit will give way to the next one. Hopefully, viewers will be able to keep up with the pace of the young artists.

“loneliness is the slowest death : a requiem for longing” by Erinn M. Cox

Join us for the opening on Friday, March 29, at 6 PM, with a special performance by the EKA Choir at 6:15 PM.

We are all born with a knowing pain in our soul, and this innate understanding is loneliness: a deep ache for another to fill the cavity we cannot otherwise fill, sincere desperation that seamlessly moves from the emotional and psychological to the physical.  It is an agonizing progression: painful in the utter dissection of the self with each invitation and rejection, each a beautiful and grounded humiliation where we no longer even recognize ourselves as we wholly long for someone to alleviate the paralyzing fear of dying alone.

When the other, it seems, is and has always been absent, the suffocation of loneliness becomes far more than a feeling – it becomes an insanity of our own making.  We are driven mad by an endless and relentless pursuit for a chosen other with a bittersweet and intoxicating need that is simultaneously exciting and devastating, loving and heartbreaking.  And it is this longing, this intense and unforgiving emotion, that will slowly and decidedly kill us.

Erinn M. Cox is a jewellery artist from the United States, currently residing in Tallinn, Estonia.   She holds a BFA in sculpture and photography from Florida State University, an MFA in sculpture and installation from the Memphis College of Art and is currently pursuing an MA degree in Jewellery at the Estonian Academy of Arts.  Erinn is a published writer on contemporary art and design, an adjunct professor of Fine Arts and Art History, and is the founder and writer for the online journal Louise & Maurice (www.louiseandmaurice.com

For more about the artist, visit www.erinnmcox.com

Erinn will give a personal tour of the exhibition on Tuesday, April 16 at 5:30 pm.

“Weak Monument” by Laura Linsi, Roland Reemaa and Tadeáš Říha

The opening of the exhibition Weak Monument will take place on February 21st at 8PM. The opening is preceded by Välkloeng at 6PM, moderated by Laura Linsi and Roland Reemaa.

Weak Monument was the Estonian national pavilion at the 16th International Architecture Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia. It was located in the deconsecrated church of Santa Maria Ausiliatrice. The exhibition at the EAA Gallery looks back at the site-specific spatial installation through photographer Hampus Berndtson’s photos and introduces the project through spatial fragments, models and the book Weak Monument: Architectures Beyond the Plinth.

 Weak Monument turns its focus from the traditional culture of monuments to space that is implicitly and concealedly political. Instead of explicit meanings inscribed in marble and bronze, what charges the public might lie elsewhere. How does space represent power? Imagine a spectrum between the triumphal column and revolutionary barricade and extend it – sometimes it is the underlying pavement which is the true representation of collective agency. Weak Monument is an oxymoron – a rhetorical device which can offer fresh perspectives on how to recognise the political in any built form.

In conjunction with the pavilion, the book Weak Monument – Architectures Beyond the Plinth edited by the curators Laura Linsi, Roland Reemaa and Tadeas Riha was published by Park Books (Zürich, 2018). The book includes essays by authors such as Tom Avermaete, Eik Hermann, Klaus Platzgummer and Margrethe Troensegaard, and presents a collection of weak monuments through paintings, personal photos and drawings as well as archive material from Estonian and European museums.

“The world’s biggest EKA Gallery-exhibited work” by PRIIT

The next exhibition at EKA Gallery is The world’s biggest EKA Gallery-exhibited work by PRIIT, a group of artists from EKA. The exhibition is open only for a week, on February 12–17 and is accessible 24/7.

PRIIT has said about the exhibition: “Space becomes installation and installation becomes space again. A trans-medium and multidimensional work fills the entire space and is in terms of its parameters the biggest work that will ever be shown in that gallery. What do we have to sacrifice to completely subordinate space to ourselves at the exhibition? We experience defiance at the white cube, experience a loss and rediscovery of self in the abstract information field of non-objects.”

PRIIT is a group of artist including Riin Maide, Sidney Lepp, Johannes Luik, Cristo Madissoo, Nele Tiidelepp. Earlier, PRIIT has produced two slightly place-specific and quite experimental exhibitions – Placeless in a Kadriorg rental flat and The Fifth Ice Age before the Third World War in the Tartu culture club Üheteistkümnes.

Movement workshop „Cave touch“ by Kaspar Aus

February 15 and 16, at 6–8PM in EKA Gallery

Kaspar Aus: “On two days I will pass on what I know about body, mind and movement. We listen, catch up and let life through ourselves. For example just like you could place one small seed cell into a human anus and from there grows the plant through and out of us. That the body becomes non-existent and the manifestation of everything that is.”

To get involved, you need comfortable clothes, shoes for running and dancing around, an effort to be opened and together. You do not need to have any specific skills in dance and body movement beforehand. There are a changing room and a shower. Everyone is welcome regardless of previous experience. Free of charge!

Young Sculptor Award 2018 “Prediction and Preservation” 3.10–10.11

Join us for the opening of the Young Sculptor Award 2018 exhibition “Prediction and Preservation” on October 3 at 6 pm. This is the first show at the gallery’s new location in the Estonian Academy of Arts, Põhja pst 7.

The exhibition focuses on the present, or maybe even different quests for the present. The present should be a place where the decisions about the past and the future are born. Therefore, the present itself is the most uncharted and unstable space-time. The future may seem like it has been before—a conventional, predictable and unchanging product of imagination and fiction. The real world is the place where unforeseen events are happening. It presents ethical problems that are more vexing than reminisces of the past or projections for the future. Welcome to the present moment, where the instruments are real space and active time units!

Artists who work with space and object fix their minds on the time dimension and the temporary; they ask how and what we perceive in our current space, and how it will be seen as it changes into the past. How the environment designs the future? How can we design ourselves for being present in the present? How values are created by things that happened or were perceived to happen in this space? Can the space become outdated or postponed?

The 2018 Young Sculptor Award show is the seventh in this series. The main goal of the show and its award is to highlight young sculptors and installation artists, support their creative production and open it to a wider public. Works are accepted to the show through open call for the sculpture and installation students, works have to be produced during the ongoing academic year. The grand prix and the second and third prize are awarded by an international jury. The awards are travels to important art events around the world.

Participating artists: Darja Krasnopevtseva, Izabella Neff, Johannes Luik, Katrin Enni, LAURi, Nele Tiidelepp, Olesja Semenkova, Richard Engel, Valetto Alexandre

Exhibition is organised by installation and sculpture department of the Estonian Academy of Arts. Tutors: Taavi Talve, Taavi Piibemann, Kirke Kangro, Art Allmägi. Technical assistance: Sander Haugas. Graphic design: Stuudio Stuudio.

Exhibition is supported by Cultural Endowment of Estonia.

JEFFREY ALAN SCUDDER’S PERFORMATIVE LECTURE ON RADICAL DIGITAL ART

On Wednesday, 5 September at 17.00 EKA Gallery and the Faculty of Fine arts invite you to a public lecture on radical digital art by visiting artist Jeffrey Alan Scudder (USA). The lecture is in English and takes place in room A302.

 

Lecture “Radical Digital Painting” groups and presents several ideas and artifacts related to contemporary painting and contextualizes its connection to historical processes and digital technology. It is inspired by and is a continuation of Radical Computer Music. Through demonstrative, interactive performance lectures, American artist and educator Jeffrey Alan Scudder presents homegrown software inventions and new theories about painting and picture making. A Google search for “digital painting” today mostly brings up Photoshop tutorials related to translating age old representational painting techniques to computational media, but the topic of digital painting has much more to offer fine arts in terms of poetry and theory. Jeffrey has created several programs that highlight abstract expressivity, play, and improvisation over production quality and technical control.

In addition to software demos, new theoretical models of image resolution, computer literacy, and picture making are presented and described, and connected to the history of abstraction in drawing and painting. He presently spends all his time traveling, performing, and continuing to develop his software and media performances.

 

As of summer and fall 2018 he is traveling and lecturing with the Danish composer Goodiepal and his band throughout Europe. Jeffrey’s work Ten Minute Painting is now a part of the permanent Goodiepal collection at the SMK Statens Museum for Kunst in Copenhagen, Denmark.
