Mika Taanila, Kristoffer Ala-Ketola, Leena Kela, and Shubhangi Singh in the group exhibition in Hobusepea Gallery, Tallinn

A group exhibition Like a Windless Cloud opens on Friday, August 11 2023 in Hobusepea Gallery, Tallinn, Estonia. The exhibition is curated by Mariliis Rebane and includes sculptures by Touristes Tristes (Dylan Ray Arnold & Océane Bruel), series of postcards by Leena Kela, video works by artists Kristoffer Ala-Ketola, and Mika Taanila and a lecture performance by Shubhangi SinghLike a Windless Cloud remains open until September 4.

The exhibition forms a constellation in which artworks interlace through their shared reflections on the accumulation of time. The curator of the exhibition was interested in searching for possibilities while also acknowledging difficulties associated with emptiness, lingering, and putting up one’s feet. In the company of the artworks, she wanted to welcome rest, slowing down, and taking it easy, as well as watching clouds pass over a clear blue sky. Along the way, came up an inability or unwillingness to succeed in this, but also other expectations related to the fast pace of contemporary life.

During the opening evening on Friday, August 11 at 18:30, you are invited to take part in a lecture performance titled Rest/Unrest: Notes on Loitering by Shubhangi Singh.

As part of the exhibition, a column by journalist Anton Vanha-Majamaa is translated into English and Estonian.

Like a Windless Cloud is supported by Kone Foundation and Arts Promotion Centre Taike. All exhibitions at Hobusepea gallery are supported by the Cultural Endowment of Estonia, the Ministry of Culture, and Liviko AS.
