Artist talk with Diana Tamane and Jurriaan Benschop

Saturday, 2 July at 4 pm

At the exhibition „Half-Love“ takes place an artist talk with the artist Diana Tamane, who is being interviewed by Dutch writer and curator Jurriaan Benschop. The event is held in English.

Half-Love explores the relationship between the artist Diana Tamane and her younger half-sister Elina. Exhibited here for the first time, this new body of work continues a long line of projects focused on her family, in which since 2010 Tamane has collaborated with members of her extended family, with photography at the heart of the conversation.

Diana Tamane (Latvia/ Estonia, 1986) was born in Riga, but lives and works in Tartu. Her primary medium of expression is photography, but she also uses video, text, drawings and found objects in her work. Tamane graduated in photography from the Tartu Art College (BA) and the LUCA School of Art in Brussels (MA).
