A sound performance with the title “Sounds. Rhythms. Fiddlestick” will be presented by the young sculptors from the Tartu Art College under the supervision of Erik Alalooga. It is a landscape of rhythms that is born out of a sculptural form and the sounds presented to the audience will originate from unexpected sources. The composed sounds don’t have to be beautiful or enjoyable but represent the diversity and inevitability of life. The pulsating creaking, clinking and banging of the statues will be performed by Kelly Alloja, Gertrud Kinna, Karin Kivisild, Maarit Mälgi, Eliise Rohtaas and Matthias Tiidelepp.
The exhibition will remain until 14 January 2018.
Additionally, 15–17 December from 12.00 to 18.00 many of the studios in the Tartu Art House will open their doors, it is possible to visit the artists and obtain artistic presents for the holidys!
