ARS Showroom #025 – Fideelia-Signe Roots „Friends”

01.03.2021

2.–31. March 2021
 
The exhibition is about the possibility of equal relationships between human- and nonhuman animals. Fideelia was a foster home for a cat whose name is Kant Nurrkärakas in the summer of 2020 at ARS Art Factory. Kant loved to explore the house but the artist could not leave him on his own for the safety reasons so they always walked together and protesting about taking him back to the studio, Kant used claws and teeth. The two friends were liberated and with the desire to be free so their frienship was built on the basis of mutual understanding. Fideelia believes in the liberty and equality between human- and nonhuman animals and has proved it through her practise as animal rights activist. The full potential of this is yet to arrive as the society changes its attitude towards the nonhuman animals.
 
Fideelia is an interdisciplinary artist. She holds PhD from Estonian Academy of Arts (2017) She has exhibited both in Estonia and abroads. Her mediums are performance, video, painting and photography. „Art for me is a great tool for dealing with uncomfortable questions in the society and expressing my opinion. I stand for human and animal rights and also work on women’s rights“.
