Maiu Mooses, Margot Kask, Stina Valgma HINGAMINE 11.03. - 6.04. 2022


Aine- ja teabevahetus, dialoog sisemise ja välise, enda ja teiste, oma ja võõra vahel. Pingestumine ja lõdvenemine, avardumine ja koondumine, sirutumine ja kokkutõmme. Tuksumine, võbelemine, värelemine.

Hing, hingestatus ja hingus on seotud elu ja elususega. Hingusele minek, seevastu, märgib elu lõppemist, vähemalt füüsilisel tasandil.

Elususe tingimus(t)eks on ainevahetuses osalemine ja/või (enese)teadvuse kasutamine. Nende tingimuste ulatus on hoomamatu ja nii võib olla ka elusus. Hingamisega sarnased sisse-välja liikumise protsessid toimuvad ka mõningate objektidega, mida ei peeta elusaks ja eneseteadlikeks, näiteks atmosfäär või meri. Sealgi toimivad vaheldumisi tõmbe- ja tõukejõud, pindpinevus ja tiheduse võrdsustumine.

Hingamine koosneb vastuvõtust ja ära andmisest. Vastuvõtlikkuse tingimuseks on sisemine vaikus, tühjus. Küllane, elav, teadvustatud ja tunnetatud tühjus tekitab ärksuse, valmisoleku, huvi. Hinge tõmbamine on säärase vaikuse loomine. See, kas värskenduseks on vaja pikemat puhkust, välja magamist, hingetõmmet või silmapilku, sõltub ilmselt oskustest.


Nii kirjeldab kunstnik Margot Kask kolme kunstniku ühisnäitust kus väljapanek koosneb Moosese hõbeehetest, Valgma keraamilistest anumatest (must ja valge savi, kõrgkuumus) ja Kase akvarellijoonistustest (tušš, akrüül, akvarell).

Exchange of matter and information, dialogue between the inner and the outer, between you and the other. Tension and relaxation, broadening and accumulation, stretching out and contraction. Pulsating, flickering, fluttering.

Spirit, animatedness and breath are connected to life and being alive. Dying breath, in turn, marks the end of life, at least in physical sense.

Condition(s) for being alive is participation in metabolism and/or using (self)consciousness. The scope of these conditions is impereptible, and this might also be the case with the state of being alive. Processes of moving in and out similar to breathing also happen with certain objects that are not considered to be alive and self-conscious, such as atmosphere or sea where gravitation and propulsion interact as well as surface tension and density are equalized. Breathing is made of the acts of receiving and giving away. Receptiveness requires inner silence, emptiness. Emptiness that is full, lively, conscious and cognized creates mindfulness, readiness and interest. Catching one's breath equals to creating such silence. Whether one needs a longer rest, recovery sleep, just a breath or a blink of an eye obviously depends on one's skills.


This is the way the three participating artists describe their current group show where silver jewellery, ceramic pieces and watercolour drawings are being exhibited.
