SOLD OUT! Maarja Nuut & Ruum

Time: 02.02.19  20:00–21:00
Location: Kumu auditorium
Price: 16 € / 19 € / 22 €

Maarja Nuut & Ruum have been invited to perform at the ceremonial finissage of the Wild Souls. Symbolism in the Art of the Baltic States exhibition. In their music, this enigmatic duo, which moves between shadows and light, unites the past and the present, heritage and synthesis, as well as the strange intuitive world-view of the past and the promising new technological world that awaits us, as certain shamanist tensions, insights into people’s inner worlds and a reinterpretation of traditional stories and mystical places are becoming increasingly important. The duo’s repertoire, which combines traditional music and its motifs with contemporary electronic sounds, harmonises with the mystical undertones of symbolist art, which, in turn, is intertwined with details from folk religion and heritage, spiritualised natural landscapes and dreams.

In the spring of 2018, the international exhibition Wild Souls. Symbolism in the Art of the Baltic States was organised at the distinguished Musée d’Orsay in Paris to celebrate the centenaries of the Baltic states. The exhibition included about 150 works from iconic Baltic artists from the late 19th century to the 1930s. During this autumn-winter, the exhibition is open at the Kumu Art Museum and includes works by Janis Rozentāls, Vilhelms Purvītis, Mikalojus Konstantinas Čiurlionis, Kristjan Raud, Nikolai Triik, Konrad Mägi, Oskar Kallis and many other greats of Estonian, Latvian and Lithuanian art. The curators of the exhibition are Rodolphe Rapetti, a researcher of French Symbolism, and the Estonian art historian Liis Pählapuu.
