Neeme Külm’s installation deals with spatiality, striking up a dialogue between the work and the surrounding space. Külm drew inspiration for his work from the architecture of Kunsthalle Helsinki and one of Helsinki’s famed landmarks, the Central Railway Station by Eliel Saarinen. Known also for his sculptures and politically engaged video art, Külm graduated from the Estonian Academy of Arts in 2006. He has exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibitions both in Estonia and abroad.
Jass Kaselaan fills the Kunsthalle sculpture gallery with a nine-metre-long abstract sculptural object accompanied by a soundscape of electrical noise. Typically for Kaselaan, the work combines many mediums, including a selection of photographs on display alongside the sculpture. Kaselaan graduated from the sculpture department of the Estonian Academy of Arts in 2008. He is the winner of the 2014 Köler Prize awarded by the Contemporary Art Museum of Estonia, as well as the Kristjan Raud Art Award in 2014 and the Anton Starkopf Sculpture Prize in 2011.
The Alice, Neeme & Jass exhibition is a collaborative project between Kunsthalle Helsinki and Tallinn Art Hall. It forms part of the jubilee programme of the 100th anniversary of the Republic of Estonia. Exhibition is installed by Valge Kuup.
