Esimene peatuspunkt “Vägi”

Vana-Võromaa Kultuurikojas 14. 05 – 4. 07. 2021.

"Force" is introduced by a (the Force) concept visualized by curators Jana Huul, Marje Taska and Reet Varblane: a mentally charged silver object with a text Sanctus Praesens and the ritual of consecrating a baton filmed in the early morning of the new moon phase in Kütiorg sacred natural site.

Oma sõnumi on kuraatorid teatepulgana andnud üle kümnele kunstnikule, kes on oma töödes väge väljendanud ja endale sobivalt tõlgendanud.

The development of technology and science hasn't only helped with creating a welfare society but with its recklessness, has initiated an ecological crisis. Primal nature and ancestors' wisdom remind us of the source of the force. 

Peeter Laurits has seen force mightier as human, from an eternal perspective ("Gordion's Knot"). Ivo Lill's colourful glass object "Refraction" functions as the symbol of light and its force.

Anna Hints' installation "Talks with dead grandmother. Dream nr 26122020" and Swedish artist Sanne Sihm's enormous faces speak of the ancestors' strength. These are in harmony with Terje Ojaver's sculpture "The One-Legged Plow Woman" which is the embodiment of an old woman's toughness.

Uku Sepsivart and Elo Liiv ponder about the tracks of human beings: Sepsivart with a bit of absurdity, Liiv depicts the loss of the force of humankind and nature's rebellion.

Len Murusalu has interpreted force ("Searching for the Golden Age") from a distance as an observer of the horizon and searching for its moment – the sanctus praesensArtist duo Villu Plink and Silja Saarepuu's two videos ("Lady's Portrait" and "Gentleman's Portrait") are an example of the force of the almost invisible and seemingly trivial factors. The exhibition finishes with Raul Meel's "Love Spells", manifestation of the force of love.

Aasta pärast, 2022. aasta märtsis annavad „Väe“ kunstnikud oma teatepulga üle „Vaimu“ kunstnikele ja need omakorda 2023. aastal „Võimu“ omadele. Ehk õnnestub ühendada võim vaimu abil väega ja leida ka võimukoldes väepaik.
