Ene-Liis Semper, Tiit Ojasoo


Art


Estonia, Switzerland / Performance
The Estonian artist duo Ene-Liis Semper and Tiit Ojasoo became legends with Theater NO99 and its production named after a work by Joseph Beuys: How to Explain Pictures to a Dead Hare. Now, in response to the enforced closure of cultural institutions in 2020 due to the pandemic, it is time to reconsider the uses of art and to reevaluate its place in society. Semper and Ojasoo raise fundamental questions: What does art achieve? Can its value be gauged solely by the rules of the (art) market? Framed within a classic white cube, a torrent of images fuses the theory, practice and reception of art into a new narrative. A highly personal statement that invites its audience to engage deeply with the power of art and question their own attitudes.
