Exhibition “Monument valley (may contain artefacts)” by
ANNA MARI LIIVRAND
Anna Mari Liivrand will open her exhibition “Monument valley (may contain artefacts)” in the new Showcase Gallery of the department of photography at the Estonian Academy of Arts (Põhja pst 35, Tallinn at 6pm on Wednesday, September 5, 2018.
Anna Mari Liivrand’s new exhibition is part of the 20th anniversary celebrations of the department of photography at the Estonian Academy of Arts. Different events including lectures are hosted by the Estonian Museum of Contemporary Art (Põhja pst 35). An exhibition by the Czech art theoretician and curator Vít Havránek was held in the new Showcase Gallery in the summer of 2018. This fall the programme of the Gallery is curated by Kaisa Maasik. In the future this Gallery will become an artspace based on open call.
Anna Mari Liivrand’s current exhibition depicts an unproportional, distorted view into a room similar to a garden that has been caught inside of a glass chamber. The stained glass is composed out of memory shards through which a valley of frozen curiosities reveal themselves. It is an ephemeral walk in the form of glass pillars, residue, lucky charms and vessels.
The current exhibition can be viewed at any time and it will remain open until October 14th.
Graphic Design: Mai Bauvald and Ran-Re Reimann
