London-based Estonian artist Maria Kapajeva’s largest solo exhibition thus far, entitled The Dream is Wonderful, Yet Unclear, is opening at Narva Art Residency.
As part of the Tallinn Photomonth programme, London-based Estonian artist Maria Kapajeva returns to Narva Art Residency with a solo exhibition studying the social legacy of Krenholm. For 150 years, Krenholm – the textile manufacture that was declared bankrupt in 2010 – was the most important enterprise in Narva, shaping the social and cultural as well as architectural atmosphere of the city. The exhibition focuses on the mill in the late socialist period, when its workshops employed a collective of 12,000 mainly female workers.
The opening of the exhibition will take place 8 September at 6 pm on the ground floor of the Narva Art Residency at Joala 18.
The exhibition is sponsored by the Cultural Endowment of Estonia, Estonian Academy of Arts, and Narva Gate OÜ. The entire public programme is supported by The British Council in Estonia.
Maria Kapajeva’s solo exhibition, The Dream is Wonderful, Yet Unclear, will be open at the Narva Art Residency until 8 October 2017 (T–S 12–6 pm).
