Joonmeedia in corpore Siiri Taimla and Tanel Rannala was invited to stay and produce a body of work at MoKS from February 1st till 13th. The exhibition consisting a series of drawn stories and animations gives a glimpse about the (im)possibility of connecting roles of an artist and parent while being artists- in- residence.
Siiri Taimla: "We came to MoKS without any specific plan to our exhibition. We had our children with us. We promised to Evelyn, creative operator of MoKS, that after two weeks in residency Joonmeedia will open an exhibition at MoKS gallery. As we got out from Tallinn to the nature over a long time period, we thought that finally we get a time to be out with children a lot. With the rest of time we thought to make a series of great art pieces. Nothing went as we planned. Almost. Things that started to happen with us in MoKS residency are presented in the exhibition through three different stories: "A story of true sharing", "Things my man can do in Mooste" and "You should multitask in artist residency"."
Joonmeedia is a collaborative project founded by Tanel Rannala and Siiri Taimla in 2009. Joonmeedia’s team lives and works in Tallinn, Estonia. Tanel Rannala graduated Estonian Academy of Arts in graphic art. Siiri Taimla has a BA degree in scenography and an MA degree in fine art (drawing), both from the Estonian Academy of Arts. Joonmeedia mainly exhibits its work in different discursive events such as conferences, discussions, and talks. Joonmeedia has attended around fifty such events, interacting with the theme and public through simple quickly sketched drawings. Most often, the events deal with social issues such as education, well-being, the civic society, communication, etc.
