Falling Out / World War 3

Two personal fears relate to windows –

the first: falling out (a pleasant, playful fear, enjoyed whilst sitting on windowsills)
the second: soldiers climbing in (in dreams, war is here)

When these two negative motions happen simultaneously, they cancel each other out; one makes the other impotent, leaving motion and fear hanging foolishly in the balance. The body falls and climbs. The body neither falls nor climbs.

Falling Out / World War 3 took place as part of the group exhibition Window Show, curated by Paulo Ramos, Kersti Vallikivi and Villem Jahu. Participants used personally significant windows (mostly in their homes, workplaces or studios) to exhibit a mixture of installation, painting, performance, sculpture, etc. Window Show took place in the form of a city tour, starting at 18:00 on the 27th of August 2016 in front of the Estonian Opera House, with viewers then moving together through Tallinn on bicycles (and running shoes) over the following three hours, visiting each of the works. The event culminated in Galerii Metropol with an exhibition opening, performance evening and party.
