Paul Kuimet’s works, a 16 mm film Red Bricks, White Beams and a 35 mm slide projection Untitled Transparencies, were part of Kuimet’s solo exhibition Five Volumes, curated by Nico Anklam, that was held at Narva Art Residency in the autumn of 2018.
Both works are characteristic of Kuimet’s practice, which depicts specific architectural motifs that are placed in relation to the physical carrier of the image (i.e. 35 mm slides) and the looped structure of his films. Red Bricks, White Beams was premiered at the above-mentioned solo show. It was a significant addition to Kuimet’s cycle of works from the past two years that have found their subjects in the Pärnu KEK Construction Company’s housing and industrial complex built in the late 1960s and early 1970s.
Artist is presented by Narva Art Residency.
