Taavi Talve lives and works in Tallinn. He is a graduate of the Estonian Academy of Arts (MA in fine arts, 2008). Since 2005, Talve has been an active member of the artist group Johnson and Johnson, pursued a solo career and participated in various collaborations. His works in different media are characterized by neo-conceptualist institutional criticism, spatialization of data, a textual foundation and, to some extent, a melancholy fatalism.
Talve’s recent works spring from an archivist’s impulse and connections between events of the past with the present. His works can be found in the collections of Tartu Art Museum, the Art Museum of Estonia and Ludwig Museum Budapest.
