Finissage of the exhibition ‘Point of No Return. Attunement of Attention!’ Public programme June 19 & 20

With the pre-Midsummer weekend ends the exhibition Point of No Return. Attunement of Attention [1] – it’s the last chance to take part in exhibition tours and the film programme You are running. Everyone’s got holes [2]. The second screening takes place on June 20 at 17.00, followed by a discussion led by the curator of the film programme Piibe Kolka, with anthropologist Eeva Kesküla, artist Marit Mihklepp, exhibition’s curators Ann Mirjam Vaikla and Saskia Lillepuu. The unifying theme is ‘rhythm’ – ecological, work, everyday, bodily rhythms. How to relate to various rhythms of being? What power structures rhythms express? How do rhythms transform? If and how we can choose the rhythms organising life?
The evening continues with the rhythms of Sillamäe musicians Analogue Quattro!

EEVA KESKÜLA is an anthropologist who has done ethnographic fieldwork in New Zealand, Estonia, Kazakhstan and Thailand. She has focused on the transformation of ethnic and class relations in the former Soviet Union, studying mining communities in the Karaganda coal mining area in Kazakhstan and Kohtla-Järve oil shale mining in Estonia. Fieldwork with manual workers led to her wider interest  in different ways of working and their connections to the ethic and values of work, various bodily practices and temporal rhythms. Currently she is researching location independent work during Covid-19.

MARIT MIHKLEPP is an Estonian artist currently living in The Netherlands. She works together with more-than-human bodies and imagination, attempting to encounter the almost imperceptible – too slow, too small, too far. Collaborative practices with microbial organisms, trees and human-made objects have grown into participatory experiences, video works, performative and written pieces.

The film programme is supported by the British Council in Estonia, Estonian Film Institute, NomadIT.

The exhibition is supported by the Cultural Endowment of Estonia, British Council in Estonia, Nordic Culture Fund, Frame Contemporary Art Finland, NomadIT, Tallinn Art Hall, Estonian Academy of Arts, Narva Gate, Estonian Ministry of Culture, Stroom Den Haag.
