Kogo gllery participates this year for the first time at Liste Art Fair Basel. The gallery exhibits works by two Estonian artists Mari-Leen Kiipli and Eike Eplik.
“With an innovative exhibition programme, Kogo Gallery has set its heart on introducing the younger generation of artists in particular. The invitation to participate in this year’s Liste is an international recognition of the work that has been done – it is a remarkable achievement to be part of Liste just three years after the gallery’s founding. The fact that it is only the fourth time for a gallery from the Baltics to participate in the fair highlights the regional importance of the occasion even more so,” comments Karin Laansoo, Director of Estonian Contemporary Art Development Center.
Liste Art Fair Basel is an international fair with a focus on the younger generation of galleries. The fair’s 26th edition takes place on September 20–26, 2021, in Basel, Switzerland, parallel to Art Basel.
Kogo gallery presents works of two Estonian artists Mari-Leen Kiipli and Eike Eplik, who are both deeply fascinated by nature and its complicated relationship with humankind. The stand will be built as a greenhouse serving both as a metaphor for a fantastic escapism garden and place of care as well as a symbol of human control and our overheating planet. The gallery will present videos by Mari-Leen Kiipli and sculptural works by both artists, all accompanied by living plants. On the online platform Liste Showtime, the gallery presents Mari-Leen Kiipli and her works.
The participation at the art fair is funded by the Estonian Contemporary Art Development Center and European Regional Development Fund.
