Performative installation “An owl screamed and the samovar hummed without stopping” by Urmas Lüüs and Hans-Otto Ojaste
Location: Hobusepea 2, Tallinn, Estonia
Performative installation “An owl screamed and the samovar hummed without stopping“, could sound like an existential-dystopian comedy as a genre. Artists have started from where Anton Chechov put an end to his last play “The Cherry Orchard”, and imagined a hypothetical fifth act of the play.
Urmas Lüüs (1987) and Hans-Otto Ojaste (1988) have been working as a tandem since 2010. Together they graduated from the blacksmithing speciality at the Estonian Academy of Arts and jointly created exhibitions, performances and experimental music. Since 2014, they have been running the Süvariik studio on Hobusepea street in Tallinn.
Exhibition is part of the satellite program of the Biotoopia festival.
Exhibition is supported by The Cultural Endovnment of Estonia and Estonian Academy of Arts.
