Jass Kaselaan’s personal exhibition Monster Follows the Sheep Carrier will be open in Hobusepea gallery from Thursday until April 4, 2022.
Jass Kaselaan: „Monster following the sheep carrier (the good shepherd) is an inevitability, a logical chain of cause and effect, natural and inescapable course of events. Current exhibition focuses on modeling of the resonation of pray-predator system and on creating a simulation. An important aspect here is both qualitative and quantitative analysis, evaluation and mapping of animated worlds as well as optimizing/organizing of these maps. Filtrating, designing and transforming of imported data. An attempt to make the unfathomable perceivable at least to some extent – to mark the indication about the deceptive state of free will.
Two mosaic murals and five sculptural objects are exhibited in Hobusepea gallery.”
Jass Kaselaan has graduated from Tartu Art College, obtained MA degree in the department of sculpture and installation at the Estonian Academy of Arts and taken additional courses in Imatra Art School, Finland as well as at Emil Holmer and Veronica Brovall’s studio in Berlin. He can undoubtedly be taken as one of the most acknowledged sculptors of Estonian younger generation of artists – Kaselaan has received Köler Prize (2014), Kristjan Raud Art Award (2014) and Anton Starkopf Sculpture Prize (2011). In his artwork, Jass Kaselaan focuses on large-scale sculptural, sound and spatial installations. One of his most popular installation „The Square of Dolls“, completed for the nominees’ exhibition of Köler Prize, was later exhibited in Arsenals, Riga and that has been located in the inner yard of KUMU Art Museum since 2016.
Exhibitions in Hobusepea gallery are supported by the Cultural Endowment of Estonia, Estonian Ministry of Culture and Liviko Ltd.
