Large-scale folded and dyed cardboard screens fabricated from layered sheets of paper in the colours of architectural drawings – cyan, magenta and sepia, are conceived by the artists Sarah Entwistle and Paul Kuimet as a figurative re-scaling of the architectural archive of Clive Entwistle, grandfather of Sarah Entwistle.
The screens act as a spatial scenography for a series of works on paper and steel sculptural objects. The surface of the screens is treated with hand drawn grammatical notations such as ticks, crosses, question marks and hashtags, also borrowed from the archive. With this monolithic re-scaling these symbols take-on an expletive directness and urgency.Read more

Paul Kuimet, *1984 in Estonia,
lives and works in Tallinn
A Brief History of Scaffolding / SE Screens juxtaposes photographs from Kuimet’s ongoing series of photographs with the yet to be realized screens/space dividers developed in collaboration with Sarah Entwistle.
A detailed image of a scaffolding is somewhat like the smallest structural unit of the modern real estate economy, a temporary and modular element that appears and disappears in every modern city as quickly and inconspicuously as the movement of capital that assembles the scaffolding in the first place. As with the physical screens made of steel and paper, the photographs’ materiality is emphasized by them being presented unmounted and unframed.
Paul Kuimet’s works with photographic installations and 16 mm films, the subject matter of which ranges from landscapes and architecture to autobiographical objects and works of art.Read more
Anu Vahtra, *1982 in Tallinn, Estonia,
lives and works in Brussels
Anu Vahtra’s works investigate found spatial situations. Initiated by the architectural characteristics as well as historical and contextual background of a certain site, they often focus on the exhibition format and specifics of an exhibition space but also tackle issues of public space.
Vahtra composes both physical and photographic space as if through the camera, bearing in mind distinct vantage points. What’s important is that the focus of attention is not so much on what her work depicts but rather on how it relates to and is displayed in a specific space.Read more
