Ptarmigan operated in Tallinn from 2011-2014. This website exists as an archive of its activities during this time. We no longer maintain any presence in Tallinn, but some people involved with Ptarmigan are now operating Temporary in Helsinki.
Join us as guests for a cup of tea and a taste sensation on Saturday 21st September for a cosy and mixed presentation night called 'guesting'. Representatives from Nyte ry in Pori (Finland) will present their artist association and the activities of the artist-run Gallery 3H+K whilst representatives from Ptarmigan ry in Helsinki will present performative projects that they have been working on including a presentation about 'Taste Exchange' - a participatory food project.
The night is part of the project 'guesting' which is a meeting point between artist-run associations and interested creatives. The word 'guesting' can indicate: 1) appearing as a guest; 2) participating as a guest; 3) entertaining as a guest (e.g. guest conductor). For us the idea of guesting is predominately to be entertaining as guests (stepping into the role of host / entertainer in the space of another).
For this session of 'guesting' representatives from Ptarmigan ry in Helsinki, Nyte ry in Pori, and XL Art Space in Helsinki will become guests at the Ptarmigan space in Tallinn for one weekend. Join us on Saturday night for presentations and performances. We will also make a 'guesting' tour of artistic organisations around Tallinn. If you would like to join the tour please email us on: helsinki [at] ptarmigan.fi
