Exposition

Walking and looking in a new way: Utopian dreams (2021)

Ulvi Haagensen

About this exposition

Walking through the old town of Tallinn, where everything is quiet because shops, cafés and restaurants are closed, some permanently because of a lack of tourists due to the pandemic and others temporarily because of the current lockdown, I experience the city in a new way. The city is different and no longer am I drawn in by the enticement of what I could or should buy. I no longer peer in the café window to see if there is an available table, in the expectation of a pastry and a coffee. Art galleries and museums are also closed. I’m closed out but this strange situation means there is time to stop, notice and think, space to walk and an opportunity to see things differently. There is freedom to imagine new worlds, other possibilities, and new ways of seeing and being. I look at shop windows, peer into art galleries, think about my own window exhibition in the context of these other windows, and in the process take in a full experience of visual art in the form of installations, performance art and even participation art. At the same time my thoughts take me to completely other utopian worlds where things are quite different. The walk, though initially purposeful, becomes something more than a walk. It starts to meander and – combined with what I see, remember and imagine – it becomes a meandering text with images and ideas that click in and out of focus.
