Closing of Eva Mustonen’s personal exhibition
Tartu Art House
18 August / On Saturday, 19 August at 16 to celebrate the last day of Eva Mustonen's personal exhibition “Diamond House”, the artist has co-operated with Maria Rõhu to recite texts written during the time the exhibition was still in the making process.
The texts, often independent pieces rather than mirroring the objects on display, form a sort of ghostly “guided tour”, one that's perhaps happening at another exhibition entirely, where the bodies of the texts have taken the place of the works. As a surprise guest, “Tomboy Girl. LOL”, the final piece of the “Diamond House” series will be opened to public viewing until the exhibition closes at 6 p.m. The performance will be held in Estonian, but translations of the texts are available.
Earlier Eva has characterised her oeuvre: “My works have certain ideas that worry them. It is hard to place them: neither this nor that but a mixture that disturbs. It feels strange to admit that they function at all, that they have a voice. That they can even talk! They reside in the margins like all the people who differ from the norms of the society. The system doesn’t know how to see them and if it does, it makes them inexistent.”
Eva Mustonen (b 1986) studied textile in 2006–2010 at the Tartu Art College and received her master’s degree in textile in 2010–2012 at the University of Gothenburg (HDK). Currently she is studying sculpture and installation at the Estonian Academy of Art. Her earlier personal exhibitions have taken place at the Tartu Art House, gallery Noorus in Tartu, HOP gallery in Tallinn and Tartu Art Museum. She has participated in group exhibitions in Estonia, Sweden and Lithuania. In 2014 she was awarded the Annual Young Textile Artist’s Prize.
Tartu Art House (Vanemuise 26, Tartu, Estonia) is open Wed–Mon 12–18. Exhibitions are free of charge.
The exhibitions of the Tartu Art House are supported by the Tartu Town Government and the Cultural Capital of Estonia.
