New Exhibition - Kris Lemsalu at Rüütli 4 space
Temnikova & Kasela invites you to the solo exhibition by Kris Lemsalu "Lord, Got To Keep On Groovin'". The opening will take place at 1Galerii (Rüütli 4, Tallinn) on the 7th of February at 7pm.
Rüütli 4 space: Marko Mäetamm's exhibition "The Alphabeth of Lies" 17.12-1.02.14
The artist is presenting two new works created during his recent 5-week residency at Civitella Ranieri Foundation. The exhibition takes its title from a series of drawings that span the entire Latin alphabet. In tune with Mäetamm's idiosyncratic humour, each drawing illustrates a single letter through a comic take on marital problems. The second work continues to explore the theme of family life, yet this time - influenced by his experience at the residency - Mäetamm does so through exploring a new-to-him medium of ceramics.
The opening will be accompanied by a book launch of the artist's publication "FAMILY STORIES AND MANY OTHER STORIES …and some works from 2006 to 2013". It is conceived as a sequel to Mäetamm's eponymous book (published in 2006) which documented the artist's works from student days until 2006. The new publication will cover the period from 2006 until the present day, entirely narrated by Mäetamm himself.
Mäetamm is an Estonian artist. Since graduating from Estonian Academy of the Arts' with an MA in Fine Arts in 1995, he has been exhibiting widely both locally and abroad, including representing Estonia at the Venice Biennial (2003 with Kaido Ole and in 2007). His recent solo shows include "Painting and Waiting" at Hobusepea and Draakoni galleries, Tallinn (2013); "Once Upon A Time", Galerija Centar, Podgorica, Montenegro (2012); and "Walking in My Hunting Ground", Nettie Horn, London, UK.
New Exhibition - Kaido Ole "…oh, and also..."
Temnikova & Kasela gallery is pleased to announce that solo exhibition by Kaido Ole "...oh, and also..." in Lastekodu 1 space is extended till 31st of January.
The exhibition can be seen as a continuation of the artist's KUMU museum show in 2012. Comprised of new works, "...oh, and also…" will pick up from where the last exhibition left off. As the title suggests, the artist was driven by a feeling that something can still be added, completed, extended or even fixed - given that previous experiences have proven that to go to the end in such a way often brings about the most pertinent thoughts.
The artist will himself be in the gallery on the following dates: 29.11, 05.12, 13.12, 19.12, 02.01. The gallery will be closed for Christmas from the 20th of December until January the 2nd.
Temnikova & Kasela gallery was established by gallerist and dealer Olga Temnikova and cultural promoter Indrek Kasela in 2010. It functions as one of the few commercial galleries in Estonia, representing local artists both locally and internationally. The gallery space, located in the center of Tallinn, also serves as a platform for introducing artists and projects from abroad. Through its local and international activity, the gallery aims to address the conditions in which it operates, contextualizing both its own practice as well as its place within a wider art world.
