  • Over Ingel Vaikla: Shapes and Distances

    By bringing together archival material and new footage depicting Slavutych, the last city the Soviet Union built, located in northern Ukraine, Vaikla asks how do the subjective and collective identities form as well as materialise (on film, in politics, in architecture). The adolescent character of both the city, being only three decades old, and its daring inhabitants invites the audience to balance oneself on the barriers between time and space, and every now and then, having built enough courage, to make the jump or climb across experiences, places, eras and screens. The exhibition is supplemented by two events: Saturday, 8.02.2020 at 5pm – tour with the artist and the curator. Wednesday, 18.03.2020 at 8.30pm – screening of artist films, curated by Ingel Vaikla; followed by a talk, moderated by Alicja Melzacka. Ingel Vaikla is a visual artist and filmmaker based in Belgium. In 2018–2019 Vaikla attended the postgraduate residency programme HISK in Ghent and recently started practice-based PhD studies in Audiovisual and Visual Arts at PXL-MAD, Hasselt. Vaikla’s artistic research focuses on the relationship between architecture and its users, and the representation of architecture in photography, video and film. Laura Toots is a curator and educator based in Estonia. In 2016–2019 Toots was the artistic director of the Tallinn Photomonth contemporary art biennial. Since 2017 she has been working as a curator and project manager at EKKM – a self-established non-profit initiative, an ex-squat, run by artists and curators, that operates from late 2006. EKKM is a self-established non-profit initiative, run by artists and curators, that operates from late 2006 as an ex-squat in an ancillary building of Tallinn’s former heating plant in North Tallinn. Focused on producing contemporary art exhibitions, EKKM presents four versatile projects per season. In 2011 EKKM initiated its own contemporary art prize, the Köler Prize, that is accompanied by an exhibition of the nominees. —   Curated by Laura Toots w/ EKKM
