„The Layout of the Holy Clementine“ - exhibition by Jaanus Eensalu in Philosophicum Hall Gallery
The exhibition “The Layout of the Holy Clementine” by Jaanus Eensalu, an artist and lecturer at the Pallas College of Art, will be opened on 29 April at 17 in the Philosophicum Hall Gallery.
One can find wordplay, visual play and colour play at the exhibition. There is humor in the paintings side by side with contemplations and thought-provoking stories. Those who delve into the paintings may recognize a few familiar episodes and ideas, which are connected to Tartu’s science, spiritual and cultural scene. However, the exhibition will not be lacking universal human moments that most of us can relate to.
Jaanus Eensalu dedicates this exhibition to the School of Theology and Religious Studies of the University of Tartu. He says: "The best and purest communication in the world is kindness. In its teaching and research, the School continues to value the classical approach, but also pays increasing attention to innovative and interdisciplinary directions. Against this backdrop, the School of Theology and Religious Studies is characterized by a personal approach and a homely atmosphere.
