Today I won the World Cup of blog posts. Check out latest, where we’ve posted videos and photos of our Geometric String Installation at #kultuuritolm ! www.the-penitentiary.com/blog #kolmandasambasaladus #patarei #patareivangla #art #blog #installation #tallinn #eesti #estonia #thepenitentiary #batteryproject (at Patarei Vangla, Tallinn Prison)
So, these past few months I’ve been working extremely hard on this crazy project with my best friend, Marina.
We are artists and co-founders of The Penitentiary, a site-specific art exhibition to take place in abandoned war-era prisons throughout Eastern Europe.
The first of these will take place at Patarei Prison in Tallinn, Estonia next summer, June through August. There will be a continuous rotation of artists each month, but we don’t plan on only showing art. We’ll be hosting performances, theater, lectures, round-table discussions, the works!
But, here’s the thing. We’re doing this outside of the institutional norm. We’re hoping to rely solely on crowd-funding and on our own saved money. It’s going to be a real challenge, but if it’s something worth having, we welcome the struggle.
If you can’t donate, please help by spreading the word!
Thank you thank you thank you <3
