Wednesday, November 19th from 6pm at Y gallery (Jakobi 1, Tartu)
Jaana Kokko is a Helsinki based visual artist with a background in arts and economics. She works primarily with video, but also in the fields of photography, text and drawing. Her works revolve around the subjects of language, representation and alienation with an eye of a feminist. In her practice Kokko is often interested in polylog, showing through dialog how our world consists of different individuals and their interpretations of reality in their historical context. Since 2011 Kokko is working on her practice-based dissertation in political and social arts and is being inspired by Hannah Arendt.
Rebeka Põldsam is a curator and art critic from Estonia. Her work develops around embodiement of queerness, femininity and womanliness. In recent years she has been particularly influenced by reading Tove Jansson, Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick, Bracha L. Ettinger, Clarice Lispector, hiking by bicycle and hanging out at Nancy Nakamura Shelf of Ideas in Kopli.
At Y-Gallery, Jaana Kokko will show some of her latest video works followed by a discussion. We are going to talk about inspiration and context of feminist authors, about everyday emotions that are so forgotten it's hard to quite express them.
Everybody is welcome to join the evening of films and share their inspiration!
