Self-portrait 4

[13.01 - 09.02]

Mikk-Artur Ostrov

“Abuse, corruption and hijacking of artistic thought. The conflict of idea and self-actualization. The relation between self and concept, concept and need.”

Showcase has a history as an exhibition space that takes contemporary art out of art centres. Mikk-Artur Ostrov’s artwork displays a corruption of this artistic idea through the artist’s need for self-actualization.

Mikk-Artur Ostrov (1992) is currently studying scenography (MA) at the Estonian Academy of Arts. Previously, he graduated from Tallinn University (Art Education). He works in mixed media and is interested in the individual’s relation to space at the aesthetic level.
