Shame and desperation on display in the island of Aegna

10 young artists: Lotta Koov, Timmo Lember, Merlin Meremaa, Erle Nemvalts, Johann Põldra, Helina Risti, Mari Saarepera, Hanna-Maria Vanaküla, Agnes Veski and Kaur Virkebau, have all decided to study the essence of solitude and it's presence in the city. Urban loneliness is a common side effect of big city life. The limitless amounts of social opportunities available creates a feeling of isolation when you for some reason don't exploit them. The exhibition takes place on Aegna island, where only few people live, but which is still a part of the capital Tallinn's city centre. Its a place where theoretically you're in the centre but practically isolated, all by yourself. This kind of a location - both mentally and physically - gives us an opportunity to deal with the most intimate dreams, hopes and problems. Be they even shame or desperation. 
Supervisors for the students works are Ulvi Haagensen, Philip Sajet, Nils Hint, Piret Hirv, Eve Margus- Villems, Rait Siska and Heikki Zoova.
