From 16 December, Marco Laimre’s solo exhibition MOTOR will be open in Tallinn Art Hall, bringing together contemporary art and motocross, garage and landscape, sport and technology. With this exhibition this motorsport-loving artist tries to rationalise his passion and find a practical reason for riding a motorcycle instead of simply doing it.
The artist poses several questions in his exhibition: How can we combine the process of art with motorsport? How can we create a symbol of landscape from the perspective of a motorcyclist? What happens when ‘garage poetics’ is transferred to the context of an art exhibition, or vice versa? How is repairing things different from creating as a process? Does an engine have a face?
According to the curators, the exhibition provides a glimpse into Laimre’s experience of garage culture, analysing that world of constantly making and inventing and the connecting points between hobby sports and a personal art practice.
