KOGO: Diana Tamane

KOGO is a new contemporary art gallery that will soon open at Aparaaditehas, in Tartu. At the fair, the gallery presents works by Diana Tamane (b. 1986). Diana has studied photography at Tartu Art College, the Luca School of Arts in Brussels and the Higher Institute of Fine Arts (HISK) in Ghent, Belgium. In 2016, she was selected among 10 young Belgian talents by the Fotomuseum Antwerp and got “Friends of the S.M.A.K. Prize | Coming people” given by Museum of Contemporary Art in Ghent. The artist explains: “Often I am interested in what is broken or not functional, quiet tensions in the communication between people. I use daily events and inner conflicts as a tool to reflect on contemporary life.” In the work Blood pressure, Diana has photographed the photos of her great-grandmother’s family album that had been used by great-grandmother as note papers for writing down her heart beat and blood pressure.
