THE OUTSIDE WORLD MUST NOT COME IN
Paintings and Videos by Alexei Gordin
September 26-29, daily 2-7pm
Opening reception: Tuesday September 25th, 6pm
SomoS presents The outside world must not come in, a solo exhibition of paintings and videos by Estonian visual artist Alexei Gordin, winner of the 2017 Baltic Young Painter Prize, and current SomoS Artist-in-Residence. In his paintings, images of the idealized sphere of the professional art world are appropriated as a stage for absurdist fictional situations underlining the artist’s view of its sterility and lifelessness. In the exhibition’s narrative, Gordin puts forward the abandoned space as an antagonistic element.
