Vana EKA galerii (Kunstihoone sisehoov)
Fibrous, the 1st exhibition held in the international Skulpakuu event. From November 6th until the 14th, seven international sculpture and installation artists will take over the Old EKA Gallery. The exhibition will explore the topics of power and authority. There will also be a curator tour on 08.11 and a panel-discussion about the current notion of sculpture in contemporary thought on 13.11.
You resonate with this. To take over this basement room, seven artists come together in a symbiotic relationship. Though being aware of the rules in the cooperation, they seek to grow laterally.
Fibrous, an exhibition about power, control, choice, force… themes that are suggested in the individual artworks, as well as where the works meet each other in space. The artists seek to expose the connecting fibres, the strategies of taking over and persisting within a defined room. This might show an internal struggle occuring as they give and take to find balance.
The form is fragile, it dissolves, when you touch it, it is not the same as before. It is mutable. I look around and it permeates all. It throbs in our veins, and with it, we are able to change anything.
The exhibition is curated by Laura De Jaeger with artistic director Stacey Koosel. Itwill open on November 6th at 18.00, featuring works by Barbara Kocsis, Ben Caro, Darja Krasnopevtseva, Johannes Luik, Laura De Jaeger, LAURi and Martina Buck.
