Painting is an organic and dynamic part of the contemporary art system, while also being a medium with an extremely diverse history and store of techniques. The study painting involves acquiring both general and universal knowledge and skills, as well as discovering the more specific possibilities of the art of painting in the technical and conceptual context, along with the necessary depiction skills. The advantage of painting in the digital age is the living touch – the artist’s immediate contact with the material, and the unique personal nature of the creative process. This method, which involves experimenting and learning from one’s mistakes, is primordially human in its emotional incorrectness.
It takes place on the 29th of November in the second tunnel of the historical ammunition storage in Astangu and lasts for only one night!
The exhibited works are site-specific and deal with the problematics related to the location. What kind of meaning does a former ammunition storage with its non-functional existence possess regarding the city? What symbols does it hold, what connections does it awake? How can an artist use extreme conditions and make them work for his or her creation?
Tunnel as a storage, tunnel as a riddle, tunnel as a route, shelter or a hazard. Tunnel as a beginning, middle part and an ending.
Participating artists: Heleliis Hõim, Carl-Robert Kagge, Hanna-Liisa Lavonen, Anu Lehis, Solveig Lill and Miina Peterson.
Tutors of the course are Jaan Toomik and Vladimir Dubossarsky.
