Exhibition “Face-to-Face: The Story of the Baltic Exchange” by SALTO AB and Neeme Külm
Venue: Museum of Estonian Architecture
A monumental kinetic installation by Maarja Kask and Ralf Lõoke of Salto Architects and artist Neeme Külm told the story of a building that had lost its place. In the words of the Museum of Estonian Architecture, the fragments of the Baltic Exchange building, which had itself stirred a good deal of controversy in the Estonian public, made their first life-size appearance. The visitors were able to stand face-to-face with the historic building’s pediment, which has been at various times arbitrarily displaced by [Irish Republican Army] terrorists, businessmen and today, architects and artists. At the exhibition, the fragment of the building in question was at the disposal of anyone who wished to subject it to their will.
