Viewing and Reading Room

26.4.2018 — 5.5.2018

The opening event of Kogo Gallery. The artists who would all have their solo or duo exhibition in the gallery during 2018, together took over the new space in their own personal manner by creating either connections or headstrong oppositions between each other. Elīna Vītola presented the viewer with humorous observations about the connections that abstract art has with everyday life and politics, while Kristi Kongi focused on systematic research into light, colour and senses. Social, personal and existential was represented in Alexei Gordin’s adventures in the art world but also in Diana Tamane’s sensitive approaches to the stories from her family history. Eva Mustonen and Mari-Leen Kiipli worked together to create an installation that placed the viewer face-to-face with bizarre found and invented objects. The gallery became a viewing and reading room where the visitors were invited to spend their time and to acquaint themselves with the works of the artists.
