Shadows of a Doubt
Tallinn Art Hall
2 -- 27 October 2013


Tallinn Photomonth presents Shadows of a Doubt, a group exhibition at Tallinn Art Hall that brings together works by seventeen international artists, proposing different ways to engage with the experience and conditions of the present moment.

According to the curator of the exhibition Niekolaas Johannes Lekkerkerk (Rotterdam, The Netherlands), Shadows of a Doubt aims to provide an active space for "an appointment with thought".

"The present moment is always unstable and fleeting," said Lekkerkerk. "I'm inviting the viewer to reflect on how individual memories, collective histories, fears and hopes inform and obscure the experience of the present."

Whilst Shadows of a Doubt is a central part of the programme of Tallinn Photomonth, it is not a photography exhibition. "The concept of time is essential to the way we think about photography; and photography, in turn, is instrumental to how not only our memories, but also our expectations for the future are formed," said Kristel Raesaar, artistic leader of the festival.


Curator: Niekolaas Johannes Lekkerkerk. Participating artists: Nina Beier, Persijn Broersen & Margit Lukács, David Raymond Conroy, Filip Gilissen, Ane Mette Hol, Toril Johannessen, Flo Kasearu, Gert Jan Kocken, Laura Kuusk, Oliver Laric, Gabriel Lester, Katja Novitskova, Magali Reus, Meriç Algün Ringborg, Jani Ruscica, Mario García Torres, Tarvo Varres
