Part of Estonia Now festival celebrating 100 years of Estonia
Tramway 5, Glasgow
November 12 to 18
The pieces screened at the exhibition Trial and Error fall within a thematic framework of everydayness and human attempts in coping with it. In a variety of ways, the selected works open up daily life and simple routines, but all with a constant tension vibrating in the background. The potential for failure is permanently present, but to live and grow means at once to connect error to trial, again and again.
Flo Kasearu, Mari-Leen Kiipli, Paul Kuimet, Laura Kuusk and Camille Laurelli, Marge Monko, Mark Raidpere, Liina Siib, Ingel Vaikla.
Kulla Laas (Foku) and Kaisa Maasik.
A curatorial tour for the programme will take place on Monday 12 November at 3pm.
Trial and Error will be accompanied by a TalkSeePhotography event, Contemporary Love, at CCA Glasgow on Monday 12 November. A screening of artists’ short films curated by multidisciplinary artist Marge Monko (EST) will be followed by a discussion event on the topic of Contemporary Love. Monko will be in conversation with the Glasgow based video artist Stina Wirfelt.
The programme is organised in collaboration with the Ministry of Culture of Estonia and the Estonian Embassy in London, the Cultural Endowment of Estonia, CCA Glasgow and TalkSeePhotography. Co-produced by Tramway.

The Estonian culture festival Estonia Now aims to introduce Estonian culture on an international scale. The festival has been proposed and co-produced by the Estonian Embassy in London, as part of the Estonian Republic centenary celebrations.
Estonian Union of Photography Artists (Foku) was created in 2007 to introduce and develop contemporary art and visual culture as well as to engage different audiences in the discussion about art. Since 2011 Foku has organised Tallinn Photomonth – an artist led biennial of contemporary art and visual culture. Tallinn Photomonth looks at developments in art and society in a world mediated by cameras, screens and images.
