The exhibition is a combination of different setting with a predetermined spatial order. There is light, there is shadow. There are sources, there is spectacle. Does there have to be a logical link between these entities? Is everything that looks the same, actually the same?
The Moon also reflects light as if it was its own…
The staged space allows visitors to experience states of relief from the causes and consequences and to sense the moments where the overestimation of understanding has passed. Something that initially seemed logical and intellectually not demanding, becomes increasingly unfounded on closer inspection.
How to display black light; how to measure love; how to move in a way that the shadow stays in place? “Consequences without a cause” acts as a spatial delusion that higlights your own confusion.
Henri Hütt (b 1985) is a (performing) artist, whose spectrum of artwork contains predominantly technological performative acts, sound-performances, staged exhibitions, curating, writing, installative performances, instructional staged shifts and other unattainable formats. Hütt’s artistic examples include performances which incorporate all theatre spaces as well as micro-tonal flickerings of an empty space. The present exhibition is his first solo exhibition in Tartu and an energetic come-back to the visual art scene.
