Keiu Maasik obtained BA degree in the department of photography at the Estonian Academy of Arts and currently continues her MA studies in the same department. Present exposition is the artist’s first personal exhibition.
The artist comments on her work In Memory’s House of Cards as follows: „Imagine a house of cards. Imagine there are photographs instead of cards. Photographs made by me. Imagine the house is a small world that I have created and where I live alone. In this world, the real is only what is present on the photograph. All that has been documented, has existed and will continue existing. What is not on the photo, has probably not existed.
The foundation of my house of cards was built by my parents. My mother took photos and father kept filming our daily life with his video camera in 1998-2003. We got our first digital camera in 2003. Thanks to that, building of the house of cards became my task. Gradually, I learned to document my life and my family’s life myself.“
Exhibition will be open until April 24, 2017.
