Horizon, a sitespecific installation by Johanna Jõekalda, 8–10 pm
The opening exhibition of the gallery of Estonian Academy of Arts collocates the works of nine young artists who are studying in the academy, or have recently graduated, and have made their studies for some time abroad. The exhibition raises questions regarding boundaries as angular and disrupted phenomena, visualizing the notion that brutal generalisations are inadequate when studying individual cases.
The participating artists explore social boundaries, the construction and deconstruction of such boundaries, relational interactions in the border of space and body, and with the paradoxes of borders. By making their personal interventions more apparent the artists demonstrate that boundaries are not everlasting, but rather created and removed.
Participating artists: Alina Orav, Henri Hütt, Johanna Jõekalda, Kati Saarits, Kristel Saan, Kristina Õllek, Pille-Riin Jaik, Sten Saarits, Uku Sepsivart
Organised by Eda Tuulberg, Merilin Talumaa, Tiiu Parbus
