Our home, which also houses my office, was sold to us with its furniture. The previous resident took almost nothing with him. Furniture, utensils, clothing, books, collections, memories, letters, photographs, even cars that had accumulated over the decades remained in place. We settled into a house, carried the previous life of the house out and got our own inside.
As I moved the old, stagnant clock off the wall, it suddenly began to work. I left it in those places. Most of the books burned in the fireplace, but a small booklet of short stories dropped between the little giant of History: Plans for the Past.

The remaining items eventually merged into our own. The same thing happens to memories, they mingle with each other, and eventually we are left with vague, detached, often irrelevant haunting situations. For this exhibition, I have worked on memories, plans and glimpses of the past.

Jenny Grönholm (b. 1988) is a visual artist living in Estonia who works mostly with painting. He graduated from the Estonian Academy of Arts with a master’s degree in visual arts in
2018. He has held solo exhibitions in Estonia and participated in joint exhibitions in Finland. Gallery Huuto’s exhibition is his first solo exhibition on the Finnish side.
Grönholm mainly works in public art. His works are in the collections of the Estonian state.

The exhibition has been supported by the Taike Korona Grant and the Estonian Cultural Foundation.
