From Tuesday, December 8, counting down to the new year, we will present an artist with a new work each day. The works relate on different levels to the challenges that this year has brought to us all.
You will find the respective work on our social media accounts, in our newsletter and on our websites, where we will add a new work every day.
For many years, our two galleries have met at art fairs, biennials and gallery weekends all over the world. We have been booth neighbors at art fairs, and helped each other out. This year has been different, as none of us has been traveling, art fairs and biennales have been cancelled, and our galleries have been closed for months. By sharing our gallery platforms and counting down to a new year, we want to revive this spirit and to finally get this year over with!

Kaarel Kurismaa, "Tallinna trammi-objekt", sketch for the installation, 1988
Kaarel Kurismaa's installation "Tallinna trammi-object" in Tallinn was announced as a cultural heritage object by Minister of Culture Tõnis Lukas.
"Tallinna trammi-objekt" was completed in 1993. Temnikova & Kasela gallery proposed the object be made a cultural heritage object in October of 2019.
The object's form has preserved itself well over the years but the color scheme has been changed in cooperation with the author. The original blue-red-white tone was turned blue and yellow in 2008. The piece, made of brick, concrete and metal is given kinetic extra value by a weather vane.
City artist Urmas Mikk commissioned for the piece in 1988 with the intention of creating a sculpture for the 100th anniversary of tram traffic in Tallinn. The initial idea of the installation comes from "Trammivasikas", a 1983 puppet film by Kurismaa.

The Brandenburg Art Festival celebrated its anniversary year together with artists from the past 25 editions, including many well-known names from the international art scene. Two decades before the big country life trend, ROHKUNSTBAU drew attention to areas of retreat away from the metropolises. In a summery, relaxed dialogue with art, the landscape and the local people, the festival promoted humane togetherness and a caring relationship with nature.
The exhibition was on view from 26 June until 4 October 2020.
