What is the promise of the present-day art world for young artists and creatives coming to maturity in a post-pandemic society, crippled by the ongoing effects of crisis and uncertainty, and more recently threatened by the Russian war of aggression in Ukraine?
Turbulences can sometimes open new ways of approaching things, as we no longer need to follow canons that have been built beforehand. What can this world offer us – building materials or ruins? And what can we offer it – more flexibility or new tools to build solid structures?
The exhibition brings together young creatives from Estonia and Latvia who will collaborate on a series of new commissions. Their projects will address particular social forms in the context of the Baltics and the transformation of body, knowledge, making and gathering.
Participating artists: Alyona Movko-Mägi, Johannes Luik, Maarja Tõnisson, Junny Yeung, Madara Gruntmane, Alise Putniņa, Dzelde Mierkalne, Krišjānis Elviks
The exhibition is curated by Corina L. Apostol and Kristaps Ancāns.
