Intro
I dedicate the black stabbed heart to tears fallen.

Artist list

Tanel Veenre
The last pieces for the exhibition were finished when the world was dragged into the horror of the war so close. Endless sorrow, disappointment of politics and lots of tears. Reading news is like getting the heart stabbed.
 
In Tanel Veenre’s exhibition Paincor there are black hearts, dark hearts, hearts filled with sadness. Cor means heart in Latin. There are hearts created from various dark precious materials that speak through archetypes rather than physicality; the heart as an image imbued with its endless representation, which has begun to grow into organic refined forms under the control of the artist who thinks in the material. Heart like a flower. Heart as a fruit. Heart as horror. Heart as pain.
 
The core of this exhibition is the series of carved black hearts exhibited on wooden organ pipes. When I started with this series, the war was not here so it wasn’t about it, even if it may seem so. My father was diagnosed with fatal cancer. He has always been a great support and inspiration for my art, so this series started to grow around him. I decided to exhibit sad hearts on the organ pipes which I received from him. He is a great musician and also renovating old woodwork, this organ from a small Estonian village church is the one he didn´t finish. I have given a new life to this instrument.

In the exhibition there are also works from another series of engraved stone jewellery.  Nipple-shaped jewellery refers to the issues of freedom of body exposure, referring to the restrictions and double standards that accompany the nudity of the human body. These brooches, as well as earrings, are a commentary on the #freethenipple movement on social media, which seeks to free bodies from gender.
There are also some works in the exhibition where the two series meet. The surreal narrative figurative language has synthesized hearts with flames, nipples, and lustful tongues. Faith and eros, two powerful guides.
The exhibition Paincor by Tanel Veenre is a powerful stopover in terms of experience in both pain and sexual identity.
