The exhibition The Visitors has been put together by guest curator Andreas Nilsson from the Moderna Museet, Malmö, Sweden, with assistance from exhibitions manager, Siim Preiman. The jury for the open call section consisted of an international selection panel including Maria Kjær Themsen, Kirke Kangro, Maarin Ektermann and Siim Preiman.
Every year the Kilometre of Sculpture (KoS) invites a guest curator to tackle the challenge of staging an exhibition in the public space of a regional town in Estonia. This year Andreas Nilsson saw this as an opportunity to explore the notion of an exhibition in the context of the social fabric of a community and the materiality or lack of it in contemporary conceptions of sculpture. The artists invited to exhibit at The Visitors all tend to explore in different ways the social and political structures we inhabit in our daily existence.
