Short description

The first real world exhibition of Wall 2 Wall by the authors of Tukk Sitta. Since September 2008 thousands of Facebook users follow the misadventures of Tukk Sitta, a lovable misfit who exists only on Facebook. He moves through social networks reconstructing memories by adding himself to other people’s photos. He often appears passed out drunk, vomiting or in a state of confusion in your favorite family or vacation photo. Facebook users engage in the virtual performance art intervention titled Wall 2 Wall by sending friend requests, commenting on photos and by constructing narratives about the images. During the past 24 months, more then 1000 digital images have been created by the authors and some of the 150 participants in the project. The first real world exhibition of Wall 2 Wall contains documentation of the project as well as conceptual art pieces that will engage gallery visitors in the Tukk Sitta meme. Gallery visitors who attend the opening exhibition will experience virtual performance art in real time and real world. Wall 2 Wall started in September 2008 with ideas generated by Andrew Hicks (U.S.A.), Teresa Novotny (Austria) and Ernest Truely (U.S.A./Estonia). Stock photos of Tukk Sitta are created by Lea Giardin (Switzerland), Mic Mait (Estonia) and Jaana.Maijala (Finland). Wall 2 Wall explores virtual space as a location for art production, constructed memory, and the nature of interpersonal relationships between the real and the virtual.

Museum of Transitory Art

MoTA –

Museum of Transitory Art

MoTA is a multidisciplinary platform dedicated to advancing the research, production and presentation of transitory, experimental, and live art forms.

MoTA is a museum without a permanent collection or a fixed space. Instead, its programs are realised in different locations and contexts in temporary physical and virtual spaces.

MoTA organizes and supports transitory art in the form of continuous events, exhibitions and educational programs both locally and internationally. As its name indicates, MoTA examines what a museum can be today and in the future.

MoTA is in constant search for the new, the uncertain, and the undefined.

MoTA works on several continuous programmes & projects. We run MoTA Point – a Space for Art & Ideas, we curate and produce the annual SONICA Festival, in addition to regular music programmes such as SONICA Series and SONICA Classics.

Within the years of running our residency programme we’ve established T.R.I.B.E. – a network of residency spaces in the Balkans & Eastern Europe.

We’ve also initiated the research and archive platforms ArtistTalk.eu and Mediateque MoTA & Tomaž Brate. Our educational programmes serve a broader audience with ongoing workshops, talks, symposia, and internships.
