BODY PHYSICAL MONEY

The exhibition works of Jüri Arrak are the new ones, being exposed for the first time and they have been painted especially for the basement hall of the Haus Gallery.
 
The exhibition is conceptual. Arrak himself comments on his exhibition that if body chemistry can be regarded the internal process of the body, the body\'s physics is its outer expression. Such external manifestation of internal processes both in people and in the society is being depicted by Arrak with his current exhibition. Everything internal we can imagine to ourselves either in the exhibition hall or in our heads, but we can see the outer one-to-one in exactly such colour-form combination as it is exposed to us.
 
The one-to-one picture world eof Jüri Arrak exposes to us 5 collage technique paintings in which are depicted men in extra colourful green, red and blue outer bodies, who show real banknotes and cheques, originating from different periods and states. Colour combinations of men and banknotes are paradox, ironising the era. In the same rhythms has been created the whole exposition, 2 paintings of which for example are bodies of canvas, being physically shattered by the artist, through which can be seen the internal life of paintings.
 
Colour active exhibition is being balanced by the small formats of the paintings that leave into the exhibition hall sufficient air room for the visitor to make his own generalisations of the exposed art.
