From March 14 until 19 June 2019, a photo exhibition “Mountains and People” by Sulev Kuuse and Riho Teras will be showcased at the Johan Skytte Institute of Political Studies (Lossi 36, 3rd floor).
The photo exhibition is dedicated to all the mountains of the world and to the Georgian people. Sulev Kuuse sees unprecedented magnificence and an enormous amount of power in the mountains that stands above the self-assured pride of man. Riho Teras focuses on the simplicity and heartiness of the Georgians as a mountain nation.
The authors of the exhibition hope that the mountains will be able to restore our capability for wonder. People tend to think they know and can do everything, but only in mountains can we feel how small we really are. "You need to experience this feeling," Kuuse said. "And our exhibition is trying to convey that feeling," Teras specified.
The exhibition is supported by the University of Tartu Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology and the Institute of Genomics.
