For the first time since its foundation in 1979, Baltic Triennial 13 is being organised by and taking place in all three Baltic countries: Lithuania (May 11 – August 12), Estonia (June 29 – September 2) and Latvia (September 21 – November 18). The three distinct exhibitions act as different chapters to form the Triennial.
Baltic Triennial 13 and each of its chapters are informed by a shared concern: what does it mean to belong at a time of fractured identities? The fluctuating notion of belonging, which can be understood to exist within the conceptual and formal framework of a relationship, allows us to think beyond identity as something fixed, self-contained and essentialised.
The exhibition in Tallinn centres on sensuality and intimacy as parameters to take into account when reflecting on belonging, focusing on the body. This chapter of the Triennial addresses the moving body, the fragmented body, the organic body, the political body and the desiring body.
