(DE)FENCE documents
the first exchange project
between FLO KASEARU
HOUSE MUSEUM and
another art institution—
Zachęta National Gallery
of Art, Poland. A security
guard from Zachęta spent
one week in Tallinn,
guarding a hole in the fence
of the museum’s garden.
This project initiated
a series of exchanges with
other institutions, whereby
a museum employee—not
an artist—would be invited
to FKM to realise a new
project. The museum’s
director, Flo Kasearu,
is permanently employed
as a tour guide, cleaning
lady and security guard, so
these exchanges also give
her an opportunity to hand
over her duties and take
a break.
