I’m Only Streaming

Marko Mäetamm

Marko Mäetamm’s solo exhibition “I’m Only Streaming” will be open at Tallinn City Gallery from 31 March. The painter, who has mainly been inspired by family life over the past decade, is now turning his attention to the wars, catastrophes and other emergencies raging around the world and the willing and unwilling powerlessness of normal people in regard to these subjects. The exhibition will open on Thursday 30 March at 6pm and remain open until 30 April.

“After my largest solo show to date – “Home and Away” at Kumu in the summer of 2015 – I suddenly felt like, after so many years, finally something was detaching me from the hook of telling these family stories. I felt like as I was digging a hole through the bedroom floor and through the cellar deeper and deeper into the ground, there were so many interesting things happening around the house I would have liked to have processed.” reveals Mäetamm concerning the basis for his thematic shift.
