Kilometre of Sculpture at Tallinn Art Week
Vabaduse väljak, Tallinn
15­ – 17 June

Kilometre of Sculpture is pleased to announce that it will be participating in Tallinn Art Week this June.

The 4th kmS international exhibition will be held next year in 2018, and so pausing this year has given us space to consider new directions and new approaches. Being part of Tallinn Art Week comes at a perfect time, since it means we can still keep in touch with our friends and followers without presenting a full exhibition.

We are especially excited as this is the first time Tallinn audiences will see artworks from Kilometre of Sculpture in their own public space, and although this is not realised in the sense of a regular kmS exhibition, where possible we are attempting to recreate conditions and settings that are similar to the original context of the work. In some cases, Vabaduse väljak, as a representative parade square and the main central square of the capital, offers an even more powerful context for the works.

Participating artists:

Johnson&Johnson (EE), Flo Kasearu (EE), Anastasia Parmson (EE/AUS), Hanna Piksarv (EE), Kristin Reiman (EE)

These artists will exhibit works previously seen in kmS exhibitions in Rakvere in 2014 and 2016, and Võru in 2015.

In addition, our base of operations on the square, will also include documentation and/or details from the works of other artists involved in kmS over the last three years, including: Edith Karlson (EE), Kevin Malcolm (UK) and Ulvi Haagensen (EE/AUS).

Dates and times

June 15                  19.00 – opening, Vabaduse väljak

June 17                  all day – Tallinn Art Week festival day, Vabaduse väljak

 

Kilometre of Sculpture is an international exhibition project that explores ways of presenting contemporary art in the public space with a special interest in working with and in regional towns in Estonia.
Tallinn Art Week is a unique art festival that over seven days includes a variety of exhibitions, discussions, workshops and performances in various venues across the city. The motto of this year’s festival is “Take a Stand”.

 

We look forward to seeing you in Vabaduse väljak for this year’s Tallinn Art Week!
