Hedi Jaansoo, Tarvo Hanno Varres and the Estonian Union of Photography Artists in Turin


Estonian Union of Photography Artists (Foku) presents Hedi Jaansoo and Tarvo Varres at The Others art fair in Turin. At The Others Jaansoo’s ‘Everything’s instantly a memory and tiny golden things on the floor’ and Varres’s ‘The Shadow of a Flame’ are shown next to each other. The two artworks, both dominant on their own, are presented together in this context to reveal the delicate balance in the spatial and temporal conditions of a fair. The dialogue between them appears through accuracy, fragility and abundance, to create the experience of tension. The Others is the main independent fair in Italy dedicated to international emerging artists, taking place for 9th time in 2019 as part of the Turin Art Week.


Open: October 31st to November 3rd 2019

Address: Former military hospital Alessandro Riberi, Corso IV Novembre 80a, Turin, Italy
