Trance (Main exhibition of Tallinn Photomonth)

Curator: Ilari Laamanen

Trance explores how artworks can complicate and aid in examining the sensory experience in a technologically mediated world. It aims to disorient and reorient the viewer and the viewing situation. The closer one gets to the real, the more imaginary it becomes.


Tallinn Photomonth is an international biennial of contemporary art, which features work that spans all disciplines, and looks at developments in art and society in a world increasingly mediated by cameras, screens and images. While it was initiated by the Estonian Union of Photography Artists (Foku) in 2011, which coordinates and supports collaboration between art institutions, galleries and artists, Photomonth seeks to broaden its focus beyond the means of photography.
