Press release:

Robert Kananaj Gallery is thrilled to welcome “Every Day Is A Lifetime”: This initial residency project by Raul Altosaar immediately felt the presence at RKG, from the moment when Marvin Luvualu Antonio stepped into the collaboration. Both these artists have opened an unprecedented path to their own yet combined potential. 
Sky and earth signal a dialogue of their own to every one. The month-long residency included painting, filming, and performance art. The artists’ invitation concludes with whatever we are, by being open, being ourselves, vulnerable and curious. Every thing is a starting point. Raul’s and Marvin’s multimedia project and installation is a spring of desire to witness oneself.

Artists’s statement:

War is coming. Written on every face and object, it appears imminent. We are not afraid because together we will withstand. Side by side, moving swiftly through stagnant cityscapes, a more hospitable world can be constructed. The stronger the love, the more bodies can be held together indefinitely. Encouraged vulnerability and physical proximity softens walls and quickly, vision is regained. I see you, you feel me caring for us. Commitment to and embodiment of the present moment involves the destruction of shields and illusions. Here, there is no safety in language. You become transparent: we see you. Drawing upon our collective energies, we manifest, shape and build. We are love and we are openly moving through the vast number of worlds that populate the shifting landscapes of our days. Every day is a lifetime. The only step is the first step and this is just the beginning. Are you willing to do the work?
