Time flies over Harbours

Exhibition at the Seaplane Harbour 7.03-30.08.2020

Music is playing; moon over water,
Here is your harbor, seaman.
(Karl Ristikivi)

Seafaring and harbours have changed with the times. Whatever happens, a harbour will always be a place of departure and the eager wait for return.
This exhibition will take us on an audio-visual flight over Estonian harbours to tell the story of their past and present.

As long as sea and seafaring remain, time will continue to fly over harbours.
