Gathering at Kogo Auction on June 5th 2021

For the auction, Holger Loodus has donated a painting “Volume IV” (2017) which can be attributed to his “Volume” series developing and changing since 2017. The work examines the simultaneously captivating and cruel belief in the progress of modernism, which is still impacting us today, and the collapse of which is accompanied by the individual lives that stand on the clay feet of our social structure.
