Lill Volmer’s personal show “My Limbs” in Vent Space project room

My limbs are gods,

I am entirely a god,

no part of me is without

a god.

 

My limbs guide me,

My flesh forges the paths for me,

The gods have been transformed into my body

 

 

Lill Volmer’s exhibition “My Limbs” will open on the 1st of March at 7pm in Vent Space. The exhibition will stay open until the 9th of March.
Volmer’s “My limbs” is part of a continuing making that was initiated in the autumn of 2019 in Lista, Southern Norway. Installations exhibited are a result of the obsessive act of twisting and binding. They emit a compulsiveness that creates tension in the material while relieving tension in the body. The book that comes with the exhibition serves as both an epilogue to the works, but perhaps also as a synopsis of the exhibition.

01.03 – 19:00 opening

Laura Kuusk. Dear Algorithm,

As our lives are more and more digitally controlled, our bodies’ relationship to the environment has also changed in profound ways. Laura Kuusk’s solo exhibition “Dear Algorithm,” curated by Niekolaas Johannes Lekkerkerk, explores the productive tension between our desire to adapt and survive on the one hand, and our resistance to the logic of codes, on the other. 

The exhibition will be open from February 20 at the Tallinn Art Hall Gallery. 

The exhibition Dear Algorithm, will be staged as a choreography of everyday movements: the window display becomes a shop front for hybrid-organic clothing sculptures, the gallery attendant simultaneously serves as perception manager, a library section will give further instructions on subverting social expectations, conditioning principles and behavioral patterns, a video installation presents three nonhuman actors that aim to grapple with and relate to human working environments, and lastly one may encounter some other-than-human entities that are in no one’s pockets.

The exhibition opening will take place on Wednesday, February 19th, at 18:00 and the show will remain open until March 29th.

On 27. February we invite you to experience the performance Catch Error Throw Exception by Laura Cemin that reflects upon the role of computational thinking and algorithms in our daily life. As a supplement to the exhibition, the artist invites viewers to visit reading sessions and kombucha tastings that will take place in the library section.

Laura Kuusk lives and works in Tallinn. Kuusk mainly uses photography, video and installation in her artistic practice. Most of her works have to do with recycling anthropological visual (found) materials. Kuusk is interested in the decision-making mechanisms within the collective consciousness. Over the last years, she has worked with the experience of the human body in the surrounding environment — in homes, in clothes, in relation to technology. In her work, Kuusk experiments with the visual traces of bodily experiences and their connection to larger socio-political processes. She studied at the Annecy Higher Art School (DSRA, 2014), the Estonian Academy of Arts (MA in Photography, 2008), and Tartu University (BA in Semiotics and Cultural Theory, 2005). Kuusk is a member of the ARS art factory in Tallinn (since 2015) and was a member of the art center OUI in Grenoble (2009-2015).

Niekolaas Johannes Lekkerkerk works as a curator and writer for The Office for Curating and is director of A Tale of a Tub, a not-for-profit art space in Rotterdam. Central to Lekkerkerk’s work are social and political discourses revolving around daily living and working practices, cultural norms, and ideologies. He particularly focuses on debates concerning the Anthropocene, ecology and climate, post-humanism, and the increasing entanglement between nature and culture. Lekkerkerk recently published The Standard Book of Noun-Verb Exhibition Grammar (Onomatopee, 2018) that analyses exhibition as an ecological assemblage. In 2012, he received the inaugural Demergon Curatorial Award, and in 2014 he was the beneficiary winner of the Akbank Sanat International Curator Competition.

Art Hall Gallery (Vabaduse väljak 6) is open Wednesday till Sunday 12–7pm. Entrance is free.

The Art Hall Foundation fund is a contemporary art establishment that presents exhibitions in three galleries on the central square of Tallinn – at Tallinn Art Hall and nearby at Tallinn City Gallery and the Art Hall Gallery.

“Maintenance Is a Drag (It Takes All the Fucking Time)” at EKA Gallery 28.01.–08.02.2020

Join us for the opening of the exhibition “Maintenance Is a Drag (It Takes All the Fucking Time)” on Friday, 3 January at 6 pm. The exhibition will remain open until 8 February, Tue-Sat 12-6 pm.
 
“Something was left hanging after establishing Vent Space Project Space and organising the programme of exhibitions for the first season: what are or what should be the values and approaches we take with us from EKA? What sort of institutions are the exhibition spaces that are affiliated to art universities and what questions and contradictions are apparent in our understanding of them? During our two-week period at EKA Gallery, we will present the structural and principal liberties and limitations, the distribution of roles and the lack thereof and the invisible labour inherent in exhibitions.”
 
Vent Space is a student-run project space organised by students of curatorial studies and fine art at the Estonian Academy of Arts. The team for the first year comprised Katrin Enni, Aksel Haagensen, Hanna-Liisa Lavonen, Saskia Lillepuu, Kaisa Maasik, Kati Ots, Olesja Semenkova, Silvia Sosaar and Annika Üprus. Our initial aims when establishing Vent Space were the ability to react fast, openness and a focus on experimentation, which would offer students an alternative public platform to compliment the more official function, stricter form and more rigid structure of EKA Gallery.
 
 
The public programme will include:
 
• “7 Ways to Access EKA Gallery”, guided tour (every day at 1 pm)
• “Vertical Perspectives”, guided tour (Saturdays at 2 pm, whenever upon request)
• “Artists Anonymous” support group facilitated by Xenia Ramm (Wed 29.01 and Thu 6.02 at 6 pm)
• “Thea Cleaner Cleans” performances by Ulvi Haagensen (Wed 5.02 at 4.30 pm and Sat 8.02 at 5.30 pm)
• A discussion between the EKA gallerist Pire Sova and Maarin Ektermann (Wed 5.02 at 5 pm)
 
 
Artist-curators: Katrin Enni, Aksel Haagensen, Kaisa Maasik, Kati Ots
 
Katrin Enni (1976), Aksel Haagensen (1993), Kaisa Maasik (1994) and Kati Ots (1993) are master’s students at the Estonian Academy of Arts: Katrin, Aksel and Kaisa are students in the contemporary art programme while Kati studies curatorial studies at the Institute for Art History and Visual Culture. Katrin recently started her exchange studies at the sculpture department of the Academy of Fine Arts at the University of the Arts Helsinki. Kaisa and Kati attended the Praxis programme at the same school last year. Katrin, Aksel as well as Kati have all previously been bachelor’s students at the installation and sculpture department and Kaisa has a bachelor’s degree from the photography department at EKA.
 
In 2018, they all participated in the establishment of Vent Space project space and were team members for the first season. In summer 2019, they organised an exhibition at Vent Space of works by members from the Vent Space team titled “At the End of the Workday” and in autumn 2019, Aksel and Kati curated the group show “I can’t be fucked” at Vent Space. Katrin, Aksel and Kaisa applied for the Eduard Wiiralt Scholarship last year and Aksel was one of the recipients.
 
Title of the exhibition borrowed from Maintenance Art Manifesto 1969! Proposal for an Exhibition “CARE” (1969) by Mierle Laderman Ukeles.

“Wack Dystopia” at EKA Billboard Gallery 20.11.2018–31.01.2019

Graphic design 3rd years students present their project “Wack Dystopia” at EKA Billboard Gallery

On November 20 at 8 PM 3rd-year graphic design students will present their project “Wack Dystopia” at the EKA Billboard Gallery. The course is supervised by Norman Orro. EKA Billboard gallery is located outside on Kotzebue street. The exhibition will remain open until January 31.

In 2015, Mark Fisher coined the term “boring dystopia” to describe the mundane underbelly of the hypercapitalist London society. The first “Blade Runner” movie is already set in history, in November 2019.

Now on the brink of 2020, we live in a WACK DYSTOPIA where truth seems debatable and most news is underlined with the hashtag #notonion.

WACK DYSTOPIA is life in a glimmering technocracy, haunted by a medieval mindset.
WACK DYSTOPIA is a gut feeling, that nothing makes sense anymore.
WACK DYSTOPIA is not a forecast, but a critique of the present.

The metamodern condition finds us in limbo between utopias and dystopias. Both are simplistic caricatures and neither seem real or attainable. To move forward we first have to look truth in the eye. To get real we need to look to the absurd…

In the words of Aldous Huxley ”The trouble with fiction… is that it makes too much sense. Reality never makes sense.”

Participating students: Adam Asztalos, Kersti Heile, Elisabeth Juusu, Roven Jõekäär, Karmo Järv, Anneli Kripsaar, Syret Kärt, Liisi Lasn, Sigrid Liira, Laura Martens, Mikk Tanel Oja, Aliz Stocker, and Johann Georg Villmann

Students of Photography ask what the mid-twenties pretend to think about?

What the mid-twenties pretend to think about?

This Friday 6th of December at 20 the students of Estonian Academy of Arts photography department open the exhibition “Mid-twenties pretend they got it” at Vent Space gallery (Vabaduse väljak 6 back yard).

The exhibition is a conclusion of the working period that was marked by searching visual expression to the perception of one’s environment. The shared experiences and values in social space are interwined into several questions that the authors solve in the gallery space through the works in photographic, video and installative media.

How do we feel in the mental and physical space? What is individual and collective perception? What are the rules settled in this space? Are these rules functional? How can we change them? What is the information space we are located in? Which are the possibilities to use this space of exhibition?

Participating artists: Kristiina Aarna, Mark Cavanagh, Levent Efe, Stina Isabel Gavrilin, Inger-Liis Heinsoo, Zoe Komkommer, Kristina Kuzemko, Una Laurencic, Jana Mätas, Anna Tamm, Kertu Rannula, Diana Olesjuk, Laura Ruuder, Carolin Saage, Hans Jakob Väär.

Curators/guides: Kristiina Hansen, Sigrid Viir, Johannes Säre ja Laura Kuusk.

Vent Space gallery is located at Vabaduse väljak 6 yard in Tallinn.

The exhibition is open from 7.12-19.12 every day 12-19. Opening on 6.12 at 20.00.


On Friday, December 13th as part of the exhibition “Mid-twenties pretend they got it”, Kristiina Aarna will show her work ”Akadeemia tee 4” in the city space. Photo projection will be exhibited on December 13 at 5 pm – 7 pm at the rear wall of Akadeemia road 4 building.

Kristiina Aarna
”Akadeemia tee 4”

Art creates the public sphere, but what exactly does this mean? The first micro-district of Mustamäe was built in 1963. Thousands of people became fortunate enough to have access to warm water and a private kitchen. The plan for modernisation envisaged the creation of a residential environment, which people would not have to leave and where they would spend all of their free time. The 1960s also brought with them a great era for monumental painting in Estonia during which the first prefabricated residential buildings were decorated with pictures. These pictures represented both the synthesis of various Soviet art forms as well as an attempt by local artists to add diversity and variegation to the disjointed humdrum houses. The end walls of the prefabricated buildings on Akadeemia received optimistic sgraffitos by Valli Lember-Bogatkina, Margareta Fuks and Enn Põldroos, two of which are now hidden under a layer of insulation. The aim of my work is to produce a one-time photo-projection on the end wall of Akadeemia 4, thus making the hidden art visible again.

The exhibition “Mid-twenties pretend they got it” is open from 7.12.19–19.12.19 every day at 12-19.

December 6th – December 29th 2019
Kraam artist-run space
Address: Ülase 16 / Madara 22

The exhibition deals with personal and collective memory and site-specific works were created specifically for this room. EKA graphics students’ works combine personal stories and different points of view at Polymer itself, finding eight different ways to fill temporary space with temporary interpretations.

Exhibition “Soft narratives” will be the last one at Kraam artist-run space.

On December 13 will be Kraam’s finishing party feat. Hello Killu, Riin Maide & Co., poetic-dramatic collective Las Cuervas Trágicas (Hanneleele and Kätlin Kaldmaa), Lilli-Krõõt Repnau. More information coming soon!

19 December at 16.00 the works participating will be publicly evaluated.

20.12-26.12 the gallery will be closed.
Exhibition stays open until 29th of December 2019.

Assessment Marathon at EKA Gallery 3.–13.12.2019

Mon-Fri at 3–7 PM

December brings 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 contemporary art, prints, installation, sculpture and painting curricula will be on display. 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. On December 21 at 3 pm, there will be an auction with artworks from the painting department.
