On February 14th, Jaan Toomik will open his solo exhibition "Gesture Theater" at Mūkusala Art Salon, Riga, Latvia.
Jaan Toomik's paintings and videos continue the artist’s interest in investigating the human body and its limitations and boundaries. Toomik takes the subject in both a physical sense as well as treating the metaphysical, spiritual aspects of our entity. To what extent are these limitations and boundaries subject to the environments in which we find ourselves and how far can they be pushed when confronted with extraordinary situations? The results may range from the tragic to the bizarre and comic.
The exhibition is curated by Andris Brinkmanis and will stay on view from 15 February to 12 April in the Grand Hall of the Mukusalas Art Salon.

Still from "Oracles, Owls... Some Animals Never Sleep by Ann Lislegaard", 2012–2014
Soon enough: art in action is an exhibition about futures. It is inspired by the urgencies of our time, and a conviction that artistic practice can communicate complex problems and coordinate resistance. Some art works in the exhibition address the future directly, others point to phenomena, topics, skills or attitudes which will be more important in days to come. Self-organisation, craft and manual skills, play a certain role in the exhibition. So do collaborative methods, research-based practices, the rural, and cosmos. Media such as painting, sculpture, video, photography, performance and installation will be featured.
From February 21 to February 25, UUE – Estonian Contemporary (performance) Art Festival will take place in Kiasma, Helsinki.
Among others, you can see performances by Flo Kasearu on February 21, and Merike Estna's performance on February 24!
