Press Release of Estonia Pavilion at 58° Venice Biennale of Art

The Estonian pavilion at the Venice Biennale will host an exhibition by Kris Lemsalu.

Lemsalu is planning to create a fantasy world that is both real and fairy-tale, involving international musicians and performative artists, many of whom have worked in the past. This environment will be created in order to produce a complete and emotionally charged installation in which each viewer can participate independently. An international team of curators and writers will start working on the exhibition project.

Kris Lemsalu is an artist with a distinctive visual language that uses combined techniques and methods of ceramics, installation and performing art. The driving forces of her work are often events and stories of her personal life, on the basis of which the artist creates mises en scène that allow her to make wider generalizations.

Lemsalu studied at the Estonian Art Academy, the Danish Design School and the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna. This year he received an award for Estonian national culture for his performances at the Performa17 art biennial in New York, for the tenth anniversary events of the David Roberts Art Foundation in London and for his international exhibitions in 2017. In the summer 2018 Lemsalu will take part in the Baltic Triennial 13 and will hold a solo show at Goldsmith's College Gallery in London, in the opening, at the Vienna Secession.

Estonia has participated in the Biennale since 1997 and in 2019 it will set up its pavilion. In 2017 Katja Novitskova represented Estonia at the Venice Biennale with her exhibition If I could only see what I saw with your eyes, which was held at the Palazzo Malipiero. The progression of this exhibition can be seen at the Kumu Art Museum until 10 June.

Estonia's participation in the Venice international art biennial is organized by the Center for Contemporary Arts, Estonia and funded by the Estonian Ministry of Culture.

Hours: Gardens from 10.00 to 18.00. Arsenale from 10.00 to 18.00 (from 10.00 to 20.00 on Friday and Saturday until September 30th). Closed on Mondays (except May 13, September 2, November 18).
