A Baton from Kütiorg to Kadriorg. The Force (Vägi), The Spirit (Vaim), The Power (Võim)
The first stop, "The Force", is at Vana-Võromaa Museum and Art Gallery 15.05. – 04.07.2021
Curators: Jana Huul, Marje Taska and Reet Varblane; coordinator: Stella Mõttus; designer: Villu Plink.
Artists: Anna Hints, Peeter Laurits, Ivo Lill, Elo Liiv, Raul Meel, Len Murusalu, Terje Ojaver, Villu Plink/ Silja Saarepuu, Uku Sepsivart and Sanne Sihm.
The introduction to the exhibiton "The Force" is a visualisation of the concept by Marje Taska: a meaningfully charged silver object with a text "Sanctus Praesens" and the consecration ritual of a baton with three curators recorded at a Kütiorg sacral site Tammetsõõr in an early morning under a young moon.
The second stop, "The Spirit", is scheduled for spring 2022 at the University of Tartu Museum and the third stop, "The Power", for 2023 in Kadriorg Park, Tallinn. The artists of "The Force" will pass on the baton to the artists of "The Spirit" and they, in turn, to the artists of "The Power". The aim of the exhibition trilogy is to unite power and force with the help of spirit and to find the force in the cradle of power.
