As I have just announced in my second Newsletter – the recently mentioned exhibition project proposition for Rundum Artist-Run Space has very quickly turned into my very first solo show and it is opening already on November 14th! So for the past week we have been very busy with my wonderful assistant: cutting, printing, putting together more light boxes for the exhibition. Of course as Murphy’s Law would have it there is still one vital part missing: the LED lights I ordered (before I even knew there was going to be an exhibition) have not yet arrived in the mail. If they won’t be in my mailbox by tomorrow morning then I don’t even know…
And of course it turns out that everything is either happening all at once or not at all because this week I was also contacted by the curator of Tallinn Light Biennale inviting me to show some work there, which is pretty amazing news! So the last day of my Rundum show will also be the day they start putting up exhibitions for the Light Biennale.
This means that between organizing my first solo show and worrying about missing LEDs I am also trying to figure out when and how I could conjure up some site-specific projections to install in the awesome Helios cinema building in Tallinn Old Town where a big part of the Light Biennale will be held. It will have to be something easy to make and to install as the festival opens already on November 24th and I won’t even be around for the installation process. Instead I will be heading to Berlin for a few days to meet up with my course mate from Strasbourg University and attend a workshop on web documentaries.
This is all very exciting and nerve wrecking and exciting and I am really looking forward to the next few weeks… In the meantime if any of my readers happen to be in Hong Kong or Tokyo right now perhaps you could FedEx me a few meters of LED strip?
