First WAVE exhibition at Vent Space
Collaboration project of Heleliis Hõim (EST) and Severi Elias Rahikainen (FIN) will take place at Vent Space project- and galleryroom in the first week of August.
The idea of the exhibition reflects illusonary field of altered gravity and transformed forms that catch the vision of been created in the space.
Combined with minimal sculptures and abstract oil paintings, the gallery space transforms into an imaginarium. Anything structured depends on gravity, the bones of humans, the nature or cosmos or anything else. But what if gravity is not essential to create? What if you can play with the laws of physics and change them according to the artist’s perception? “First Wave” exhibition tests the boundaries of these questions and experiments with altering gravity, creating experimental illusions.
