Biomass - Ghost in the Corner
Kogo Gallery / TARTU (Estonia)
14.03.2020 – 30.05.2020
Kogo Gallery is glad to present the personal exhibition of the sculptor and installation artist Eike Eplik accompanied by texts from Mehis Heinsaar. Eike Eplik uses improvisation and experiments with various materials to find new and exciting forms, variations and associations. This time, she creates a gallery-wide installation of objects made of different materials (clay, porcelain, metal, foundry, wood). As art and literature have been closely intertwined in the Tartu cultural field for many years, thus creating both original creators and fascinating collaborations*, Kogo gallery proposed to invite one Estonian writer or poet to take part in the exhibition. So Eike Eplik selected Mehis Heinsaare as the partner of the show. The choice is fully justified - both creators are courageous and independent escapists whose oeuvre is based on a deep connection with the environment (nature) and the individualism of the author. Their works are elaborate, imaginative and closely connected to the subconsciousness. Neither creator is directly social or political, but in the undercurrents, these themes are inevitable. Using nature's motifs, they both create stories that are the worship of pluralism and biodiversity.
Exhibition includes texts written by Estonian writer Mehis Heinsaar.
