JOURNEY

Andrus Joonas (Estonia)

September 9 - October 15, 2017

The first road exhibition of Andrus Joonas was born close to his home at Kõima. Surprising the people speeding from town to the country, in 1995 monumental paintings named Summer in the Country emerged by the road from Pärnu to Tõstamaa.

Three and a half of the parts of this painting have survived: Wedding, Midsummer Night and Don’t Be Startled, This Is the Summer in the Country; partly also Yealds of Summer. Andrus made road art up to 2003. It was ended by vandals, the attacks of whose made it impossible to continue. Luckily the Jesus Christ and Midsummer Night have been preserved in one piece. The latter survived even the flood in the basement of the Museum of New Art during the storm of January, 2005.

The road paintings, installations and videos of Andrus Joonas are like milestones on the journey of the young artist growing and changing into advanced master.

The journey can be followed on www.andrusjoonas.pri.ee

The exhibition is supported by the Town of Pärnu and the Estonian Cultural Endowment.
