KIWA
(1975)

KIWA is a multichannel meta-artist. He actively explores and blends different media, from conceptual objects to total audiovisual environments: all together functioning as a hypertextual research of meaning-making and cultural codes, collective and personal myths. He blends the meaning of authorship on different levels. Interested in quote, pastiche, games of language and identity, (post)psychoanalysis and schizoanalysis were self-explanatory as artistic methods. The art of Kiwanoid is a labyrinth, or rather a labyrinth in a labyrinth. KIWA is also active as curator (since 1999) and lecturer in the Estonian Academy of Arts (2006-2018). He initiated a sound-art platform with a code name “metabor” (2001–2004), ;paranoia publishing group ltd (2014) and research project Soviet Hippies (2016). Last shows and performances: Moderna Museet (Sweden); Henie Onstad (Norway); The Kitchen, Yvon Lambert Gallery, Renaissance Society, Dept. of Signs & Symbols (USA); ICA, Tate Modern, Milch Gallery (UK); Stedelijk, DeAppel (Netherlands); Tseretely gallery, SKIF festival (Russia); Seccession, CAT/MAK, RR (Austria); 1st Electronic Festival (Belorussia); Rivoli59, Chateau de Tours (France); TartMus, Kumu, Vaal gallery (Estonis).
