Info

On June 15th at 5 pm, we will celebrate the end of Jinseok Choi’s residency with an exhibition and tea party at Valga train station.

In late May, the artist and professional carpenter Jinseok Choi held a repair workshop at the VARES residency, focusing mainly on repairing furniture, textiles, and clothing. Chairs, tables, stools, and other objects were brought in and revitalized during the month. On the exhibition day, they will be returned to their owners. Both the owners of the items and anyone interested in repair culture are welcome!

Jinseok Choi is an interdisciplinary artist who investigates our current cultural moment by researching historical and cultural contexts and weaving together seemingly unrelated issues via sculpture, installation, performance, and video. He was born and raised in Seoul, and currently lives and works in Los Angeles. His recent works have been shown at various art venues in South Korea and the U.S. For the VARES residency, he opened an open repair shop for Valga people. This project aims to leverage his skills as an artist, professional woodworker, and amateur seamster to benefit the Valga community.

The event takes place at the Valga train station (Jaama puiestee 12) and is free for everyone.
