Moment from Miia’s exhibition opening

One month at the residence is indeed a short time! Especially when there is an exhibition already in the middle of the month… First two weeks I was more or less working while deadline was approaching really fast. On the other hand, I do work quite effectively under some pressure. And I was not here for a holiday, either. Luckily, folks at the gallery and Tartu Artist in Residence were very helpful. My only concern was to finish the work, they took care of the rest. A big thank you to everyone.

During my stay I lived in Tartu Kunstimaja, in a really nice apartment. In that same building there are galleries and work spaces. Even if I worked a lot, I took a little time to see around in the city and meet other residents from different countries. Walking through the city always brought in front of me something interesting to see. I would have needed a bit more leisure time to explore this beautiful and interesting city better. But that means I have to come back here again. At least I´m going to miss the world’s best pastry “kohupiimatasku”, even if I might enjoyed a few over the recommendations.
