Past Resident2018: Estonian Contemporary Art Development Center
Paul Kuimet works with photographic installations and 16 mm films, the subject matter of which ranges from landscapes and architecture to objects and works of art mainly from the Modernist discourse. Kuimet’s photographs are often displayed as lightboxes in darkened spaces, which heightens the viewers’ relationships to the physical and pictorial space. His films that are constructed as continuous loops are displayed in relation to the existing exhibition space further emphasizing their sculptural qualities rather than a narrative drive.

Past Resident2018: The Adam Mickiewicz Institute
Tomasz Kowalski is part of a movement of young Polish artists embracing a form of “new surrealism.” His interest lay in the discrete hauntological aspects of the everyday and a paranoia towards reality. He expresses this discrete sensibility through a mix of parallel narratives and biography, and often collaborates with his family to make objects using various mediums. In Kowalski’s paintings, drawings, installations and sound pieces, the everyday morphs into the tragicomic, lending his imagery an enigmatic and psychedelic quality.
Tomasz Kowalski has exhibited work at Centre Pompidou, Paris; mumok, Vienna, and Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis, among others.
