Siib, Monko and Mäetamm at Amos Anderson Art Museum
Center for Contemporary Arts, Estonia announces the opening of “TAKE CARE – Politics of Emancipation”. Since 9th April 2010 the works of seven Finnish and Estonian contemporary artists are on display at Amos Anderson Art Museum. Exhibiting artists include Laura Horelli, Jaana Kokko, Marge Monko, Marko Mäetamm, Teemu Mäki, Liina Siib, Ingrid Ung.
The exhibition title contains key words to the exhibition: care and emancipation. These words are often associated with the so-called second sex. Even though the works on display often deal with women in society (e. g. Liina Siib’s photographs from the series “A Woman Takes Little Space” or Marge Monko’s film “Forum”), they also show how human beings regardless of gender always interact with others. Each work acts as a separate manifesto with emphases shifting from the personal to the communal. Together they form an entity that speaks of fear, hope, resistance, power and hierarchies.
The exhibition has been produced by AV-Arkki and the Center for Contemporary Arts, Estonia (CCA) in collaboration with the Amos Anderson Art Museum. More information can be found on the homepage of Amos Anderson Art Museum.
