NOBA Nordic Baltic contemporary art platform

The exhibition “In your skin you carry me” by Jana Mašková can be viewed in the Showcase Gallery of the Department of Photography of the Estonian Academy of Arts.

We carry a lot of weight on our shoulders.
In our heads, our hands, our feet, our muscle memory, our skin.
It remembers people that do not have to be in our lives.
It remembers the touch, the feel, the taste, the warmth or the cold.
It remembers things we do not own anymore.
It remembers things we do not remember.
It is not just our mind. It is us as a whole.
One day, I do not have to be here, but you may remember how I felt.
