Sunday, December 30th,
16:00 – 20:00 Open Doors Day at Copper Leg Residency
17.00-19.00 Opening of the exhibition of Dóra Lázár and Gábor István Karaba

Sunday, December 30th

From 16:00 till 20:00, guests can explore the residency space & its doings. At 17:00, Dóra Lázár and Gábor István Karaba will open their exhibition. The artist duo of Dóra and Gábor came from Budapest, Hungary. On Weekdays Gábor works as an art director and Dóra is teaching students at three different educational institutions, including an art high school and the photography department in a Hungarian university. In their art, they rely on three C’s, the concept, context, and communication, briefly CCC.

Here, in Copper Leg Art Residency, they search for the bridges connecting analog and digital technologies, working on the boundaries of these approaches. Their goal is to combine old techniques with new ones, by experimenting with a possible symbiosis of photo emulsion and smartphone photography, in addition they are making tests with papier-mâché surfaces and with origami pinhole cameras reflecting on today’s data overload.

The outcome can be seen when you come to the Open Doors day and the exhibition opening on Sunday, December 30, to the Rae School House (Ussiaugu tee 20, Vaskja village, Rae municipality).

We are hit by the breeze, from Central Asia or maybe from California.

We do not know exactly where the breeze came, but It’s warm at least! Now let’s give warm welcome to our next Artist in Copper Leg residency. Tara Catherine Pandeya is a California-based second-generation dancer, who is a specialist of Central Asian traditional dance. Tara has been dancing on well-known Cirque du Soleil stage as a principal dancer in show “Dralion” which toured 5 continents, 170 cities and 1,500 performances in 4.5 years. In 2015, she became the first Westerner to perform in the National Ensemble of Tajikistan. The list of her accomplishments is too long to write it all out here. Better come to meet her today (12.05.2018) on Copper Leg Open Doors Day from 15.00 – 18.00 and later stay to see her dance performance in Rae Schoolhouse.

Everything about Tara seems to be significant, but the most significant fact is that she has a grandmother who is 100 years old and despite the honorable age, she is using Facebook, driving a car by herself and helping much younger people to get to the doctor’s appointment. That’s something significant, I would say! Vital granny vs. the Estonian Republic! Long live for both!
