Join us for the opening of the group exhibition “Gentle Gestures of Self” at EKA Gallery on March 7th at 6 pm!
The exhibitions at EKA Gallery are now also open on Sundays! The exhibition remains open until March 31.
The group exhibition "Gentle Gestures of Self" brings together a selection of contemporary self-portraits. The paintings and photographs primarily depict the faces and hands of the artists, pointing at the emotions brought out by their facial expressions and gestures.
On Friday, 1st of March at 6 pm Urmas Viik will open his solo exhibition titled “Megaflowers” at Vaal Gallery. The exhibition will remain open until 30th of March.
The primary sources of inspiration for this exhibition are botanical engravings of the XIX century as well as medieval fantasy travelogues. The pivotal themes have transformed during the process, fragmented and branched into different directions, changed emphasis and reached a combination that is difficult to define with any certainty.
On Thursday, February 29th, Kärt Hammer will open her solo show, titled “Dirty White”, at Tütar gallery.
Her exhibition project delves into the intimate interplay between the divine and the secular within earthly realms. Hammer examines humanity's yearning for morality and purity, embodying her thoughts with expressive impact through the concept of "Dirty White." Her artworks lead the viewer on a poetic journey of contemplation, moving away from over-explanation and rigid definitions of art, towards semi-divine concepts, shedding the weight of excessive explication and definition.
Kärt Hammer (1988) is an interdisciplinary artist whose main focus of creative self-expression is abstract painting and drawing, but whose activity also extends to the field of installation, photography and fashion. Hammer's method is intuitive. The artist searches for intensities of pure aesthetics that are both aesthetic and psychological.
On Wednesday, February 21 at 6 p.m., Grisli Soppe-Kahar's solo exhibition Mother’s World opens in Hobusepea gallery. The exhibition will remain open until March 18, 2024.
Grisli Soppe-Kahar: "The series of paintings Mother’s World was largely completed in 2023-2024, but the prequel to the series, in the form of paintings, started in 2021.
Andres Tali's solo exhibition i n t e r m e z z o. images and transformations opens in Draakon gallery on February 20. The exhibition will remain open until March 16, 2024.
∗intermezzo (in Italian) – a short piece intended to be performed in between parts of a larger composition.
Andres Tali: “The images and transformations that were the source of this set of works have been noted down as fragments during the year 2023, and took their final shape by the beginning of January 2024. I felt the need return to the origins of my creative journey, but as always it turned out to be unachievable – it is impossible to step into the same river twice. Yet, during this process, another way of being has emerged.

Meeting with the artist 29. Feb from 17:00-19:00
What makes some moments in life so important and memorable, when at the same time so much of the things I do or see disappear a moment later to nothingness? Why do these forgotten and unused things have such a powerful impact that it feels like they were part of me?

Opening event on Saturday, February 10 at 6 PM.
It’s the middle of Estonian winter's slippery black-and-white existence, an explosion of colors and lush forms is bubbling in gallery Metropol, It makes you squint and look for support from the wall. Something like that could not even exist, but at the same time, everyone seems to have some such memory of a place or a person in their mind. Come warm up – July started in February!
The opening of the exhibition “Mapping Paradise” by Laivi / I Λ I V I is held on February 13th, 6PM at ARS Art Factory’s Project Space.
The exhibition is open until February 23rd, Tue-Sat 12-6PM.
Mapping serves as a dynamic method, enabling a comprehensive understanding and mastery over a given territory. This potent tool not only facilitates observation of vast landscapes but also unveils dimensions previously hidden or unimaginable.
The map transcends mere representation, becoming a distinct territory, separate from its reflection. This dual projection exposes only a provisional fragment of its multidimensional identity. Empty surfaces symbolise untapped potential within the unknown, while dark areas conceal a captivating utopia within their multifaceted nature.
Portraying spatiality and multiple dimensions on a two-dimensional plane highlights the relativity of abstraction. Emerging paradoxes underscore the complexity of varied definitions and the challenge of encapsulating a wealth of data within limited space.
