Vahram Muradyani teose “Teisipäev” avamine Kunstimaja fassaadil 31.10 kl 16.00!

(Scroll down for English)

Teisipäeval, 31. oktoobril kell 16 avatakse Tartu Kunstimaja fassaadil ametlikult Vahram Muradyani suuremõõtmeline teos „Teisipäev”.

Peamiselt illustraatori ja kujundajana tuntud Vahram Muradyani absurdimaiguline reklaambänneri formaadis „Teisipäev” tõstab esile fakti, et teisipäeviti saab Tartu Kunstimajas kunstist puhata ja nautida kultuuri asemel kehakinnitust. Muradyan kasutab sõnumi kommunikeerimiseks tänapäevast interneti meemikeelt ning proovib seeläbi muuta hoonet ennast selfie-magnetiks. Konservatiivsele Tartule omaselt tehakse seda ajal, kui mitmed arvamusliidrid eesotsas Kim Kardashianiga on enesepildistamise möödanikuks kuulutanud.

Teose iseloomust tulenevalt palub kunstnik teatada, et avamisele on eelkõige oodatud koertega külastajad ning loomulikult ei puudu ka korralik kehakinnitus.

Teos jääb Kunstimaja fassaadile tuleva aasta maini.

Vahram Muradyan (snd 1978) on Armeeniast pärit illustraator, kes elab juba pikemat aega Eestis. Tema töid on lisaks eesti keelsele meediale avaldatud muuhulgas The New York Times’is, Newsweekis, The Wall Street Journalis ja Adweekis. 2013. aastal toimus tal koos Sveta Bogomolovaga näitus monumentaalgaleriis ning ühiselt on valminud ka linnafestivali UIT raames Tartu Kaubamaja katusele vaid lennukitest ja Google’i kaardirakendusest nähtav monumentaalteos.


On Tuesday, 31 October at 16 Vahram Muradyan’s large-format work “Tuesday” will be opened on the facade of the Tartu Art House.

Vahram Muradyan is mainly known as an illustrator and designer. His “Tuesday” is presented in the format of an advertising banner that has strong absurd undertones. It highlights the fact that on Tuesdays Tartu Art House is closed so that people could get a respite from art and enjoy nourishment for the body instead of culture. Muradyan uses the contemporary meme-language of the internet to communicate his message and thereby tries to transform the whole building into a selfie-magnet. As befits the conservative tastes of Tartu, this happens during a time when many opinion leaders starting with Kim Kardashian have defined taking selfies as passé.

Due to the nature of the work, the artist wishes to announce that visitors with dogs are first and foremost expected to the opening and a hearty meal will be offered.

Thanks: Opera Pizza.

The work will remain on the facade until May 2018.
