Exhibition of Estonian contemporary graphics at the Tartu Art House
Tartu Art House
21 August / On Thursday, 24 August at 18.00 Estonian printmakers group exhibition “Beyond Reality” will be opened in the large and small galleries of the Tartu Art House.
The father of cyberpunk William Gibson has said: “The present is already here”. Artists can generate different mechanisms of perception: create organised personal systems that are oversaturated by information or, vice versa, materialise fantastic ideas in a clearly defined continuum.
In the era of technology, we live in the unknown, on the border between pleasure and discomfort. Even though true loneliness has seemingly become impossible (via different electronic devices we are constantly connected to something or somebody), the world can still be a phantasmal inevitability that shelters different layers,
“Beyond Reality” offers the possibility to discover this “world” from the viewpoint of contemporary printmakers: they often dismantle the visual whole into various layers that are then recompiled into a new combination or are left dysfunctional on purpose. This exhibition is not based on precisely defined technical boundaries which means that the artists can expand two-dimensional graphics through different other dimensions.
The exhibition will remain open until 17 September.
