Haus Gallery

Estonian Painters' Association

The traditional annual exhibition of the Estonian Painters’ Association at Haus Gallery this time deals with symbols, signs, beings, views, habits and non-habits, which are related to Estonia. Artworks are inspired by social phenomena in Estonia but formed in a personal antisocial way common for creative peole; not by illustrating, but by analysing what is happening or has happened during the revival of a 100-year old country.

Jaan Elken

The focus of the exhibition is on perished / decayed forest. To gain new inspiration, the artist visited territories where forest, which was cultivated as a crop, grew on an area of hundreds and thousands of square kilometres. But the activator was another type of nature – far away from the world of stylists and navigators from artificial environment, Elken redefined his position as an author, which is now declared as solid lands and stone deserts.

Juhan Püttsepp
Memorial exhibition

Püttsepp began teaching art at the same time as he was studying it himself at "Pallas" art school, making a name for himself as a respected teacher in the decades that followed. He gained wider fame as an artist thanks to his landscapes and figural compositions, which are valued for their warm colouring and expressiveness – and which can be admired in all their glory in this exhibition.

Indrek Aava
Eyes Wide Shut

You can learn a lot from a glance – the directing of the eyes towards the distance, the rolling of the eyes, blinking or squinting combined with body language may say more about a person than they would perhaps like to reveal. Even dogs that have misbehaved know this, either looking away or covering their eyes with their paws, although their reason for doing so is somewhat more naive – their hope is to make themselves invisible. At Indrek Aava’s exhibition, eyes are not shifted or covered with paws, but are instead covered by geometric and three dimensional surfaces. In addition, concealing and hiding when necessary, as the headless bodies, eyeless heads and closed eyes also represent the social and internal alienation of the author. People are increasingly finding themselves more distant from each other, because of their immersion in smart devices as well as wandering in their own personal wastelands.

Maria Sidljarevitsh
The Soul of All Natural Things

The carrying motif of the exhibition is fairy-tale mixed with the absurd. The development of this motif predates the others, appearing only after the completion of the works. The author knowingly gave up on searching for and creating a concept for the exhibition, turning off her brain and turning on her hand, thereby allowing what is hidden in her soul to be brought forth. The result was something akin to a fairy-tale, where bewitching thickets and ghostly apparitions are seen alongside enchanted forests and long-haired princesses, everything piled together under an endless starry sky.
