Mall Nukke exhibition „Metamorphosis”
The exhibition "Metamorphosis" will open on the 6th of December at 17.00. ”Metamorphoses are changes, distortions, transitions. Something turns into something. Paintings depict trivial living environments and symbols of eternity. This exhibition is a retrospective and ironic illustration of time running its course. /---/  What gets left behind from us after our physical demise? A lifeless sculpture? A metaphysical reflection of things that we have touched? A bodyless being on Facebook? A play with a moment and with eternity, sad-ironic, meaningless-transient.

Twilight Zone by Johannes Luik and LAURi
Johannes Luik and LAURi will open their co-exhibition Twilight Zone in Hobusepea gallery at 6pm on Wednesday, November 27 th , 2019.   The title of the exhibition refers to a state existing between two values, without being neither of these. The way the status physically manifests itself in space is something that is being endlessly created and re-created through daily activities that relate to the space. Both artists are exhibiting one artwork through which they study the story of a personal space and related associations.   The Fly by LAURi:

Ulvi Haagensen’s solo show “Distracting the workers
Ulvi Haagensen’s solo show “Distracting the workers / Töölisi peibutades” in the EKA Trepigalerii will be open until 27 November and being a window exhibition it is viewable 24/7.    “I am working on the line between art and everyday life. With a particular emphasis on the practices of art-making and domestic cleaning, I focus on the places where art and life meet to try to find out what the dividing lines, overlaps and resulting ambiguities look and feel like. Helping me with my work I have three imaginary assistants – an artist-cleaner, an artist-researcher and an artist-bricoleuse. Together we make, clean, think and write. This installation is a view into our working and thinking space.”  
Marco Laimre’s exhibition “A.S.T.A. 1.0 / Black Flag Shadow”
On Thursday, 14 November at 5 p.m. Marco Laimre’s personal exhibition “A.S.T.A. 1.0 / Black Flag Shadow” will be opened in the large gallery of the Tartu Art House.   Marco Laimre’s exhibition “A.S.T.A. 1.0 / Black Flag Shadow” uses installations, paintings and photos to explore post-apocalyptic FPS-RPG (first-person-shooter/role-playing-game) computer games. “A.S.T.A. 1.0 / Black Flag” is an actual episode from a potential computer game that is manifested via the methods of contemporary art. Screenshots, video loop, absurd statistics and a broken prototype of the robot cat Asta are the elements that are found in the large gallery of the Tartu Art House. The exhibition can be viewed in three levels of difficult: easy, hard or nightmare.  
Kairo’s exhibition “Summer in the City”
On Thursday, 14 November at 5.30 p.m. Kairo’s personal exhibition “Summer in the City” will be opened in the small gallery of the Tartu Art House.   The exhibition offers an overview of the best acrylic paintings Kairo has made over a period of ten years. As befits the oeuvre of a true practitioner of Naïve art, her works contain a Gauguin-like devotion to plant motifs, multicoloured patterns, skimpily attired ladies and round nostrils. The Thumbelina-sized canvases of the earlier years start to grow audaciously larger to form a bright mosaic of all the beautiful and good but also of all the toil and hardships that Kairo has seen.  
Taavi Suisalu’s exhibition “Waiting for the Light”
On Thursday, 14 November at 6 p.m. Taavi Suisalu’s personal exhibition “Waiting for the Light” will be opened in the monumental gallery of the Tartu Art House.   The work “Waiting for the Light” focuses on light that extends as a network of fine strands in the bottom of the oceans, on mountaintops and in the soil. For societies that are interlaced with technology, this light, that carries most of the contemporary flow of information, is as essential as Sun is for plants. The light has become geologic: compelled by milliseconds, it pushes through the mountains, forced by communication, it penetrates the gloom of the oceans, and ultimately it freezes in a blue shine on our faces.
