Jõusaal (gym) restages a work Serapinas initially conceived in residence at the Estonian Academy of Arts in Tallinn, Estonia. 

During this time, the artist came across a number of abandoned sculptures, relinquished and left behind by Fine Arts students. Reflecting on the Academy’s isolation from its surrounding environment - which included athletic training sites used in preparation for the 2012 Olympics - Serapinas revitalized the discarded works by constructing a gym within the Academy’s parameters. Now, Serapinas’ gym is once again brought to life. You are invited to make use of Jõusaal as you would your regular gyms. All equipment utilized here has been recreated from memory and interrogates the possibility of applying novel functions to the notion of the artwork previously made redundant.
