Diana Tamane’s solo exhibition “Typology of Touch” acts as a summary of the artist’s works about the women in her family which involve three earlier generations of women besides the author herself. Although the central works are actual portraits of four (and later three) women, all the protagonists are also approached separately through their personal stories and shared destiny, forming a collective portrait of a family.
Tamane is a Latvian-born artist who received her education in Estonia and continues to live and work here. Her works are often based on very personal themes and tell the stories of her family, but their content is emphatically understandable and recognisable to everybody thanks to our shared history. Due to Tamane’s professional interests, the people in her works are mostly explored through the medium of photography, frequently using material created by the protagonists themselves. The exhibition “Typology of Touch” on the three floors of the Contemporary Art Museum of Estonia forms a peaceful contemplation that highlights the inner strength of three women who have played an important role in Tamane’s life.
