Opening on Friday, 08.04.22 at 6pm, followed by a performance at 7 p.m.
The exhibition is also open on 09.04.22 from 3pm to 8pm.
Elo Vahtrik’s exhibition “How to look at grass?” is the highlighting of the foolishness of human nature, and especially of unconscious behaviors, through the view of the grass as a symbol and concept. The exhibition is inspired by lawn mowing robots and how the one-pole aesthetics of wealth is expressed in the desire to rule nature.
How tall can grass grow? Does the smell of fresh grass fit in an aerosol can?
