I HAVE PUT THE PICTURE ON THE WALL SO AS TO FORGET THERE WAS A WALL,
BUT IN FORGETTING THE WALL I FORGET THE PICTURE, TOO.*

While I was approaching the opening of my exhibition at EKA G I started to work more extensively with the space itself rather than the initial project I had in mind. I wanted to turn a trespassers' foyer into a more gallery-like space, where one could behold. My observations indicated that though EKA G is the only entrance to the Estonian Academy of Arts one can actually approach 22 other enterprises from here. As I understood that due to its essential functions a gallery-foyer will always serve mainly as a foyer my interests reversed. I sensed the idea of highlighting the potentiality of a certain space, a possibility of turning a given space into an object in itself.
