The personal exhibition “Halfway to the Alleyway of the End of the World”, dedicated to the fiftieth anniversary of Andres Sütevaka, will be opened in Gallery Pallas on Friday, 15th of July at 5 pm.
This is the final chord of a two-part project – this is a further development of Andres Sütevaka’s solo exhibition that took place in spring in the Pärnu City Gallery. “The selection spanning three decades is based on the principle that each stage has been necessary for Sütevaka to reach his artistic maturity today and for his development as a ceramicist. Motivated by this, we have now brought to the audience his earlier and scandalous works, as well as the artist’s most recent paintings, which the public has not yet seen,” said curator Kadri Asmer.
The focus of the exhibition is on the creatively experimental 1990s and the abstract painting that became dominant in the 2000s. The exhibition also exhibits ceramics, to what Sütevaka reached while studying and working in Barcelona from 2014 until 2021. “Sütevaka has studied and worked in Tartu, Pärnu, Tallinn and Spain during his artist years, which is why his work should be viewed on the basis of the surrounding environment also,” added co-curator Mareli Reinhold. Andres Sütevaka belongs to the Estonian Painters’ Union, Estonian Artists’ Association, and the Catalan Association of Ceramics.
Exhibition is opened until 13th of August 2022. Curator’s tour will take place on 6 August at 3 pm.
