The triennial invites visitors to tours of the exhibition led by participating Estonian artists.
In August, the triennial welcomes visitors to both Estonian and Russian language guided tours, which also feature artists, who introduce their creative processes and impulses. On Wednesday, 4 August at 18.00 the curator’s assistant Keiu Krikmann will introduce the exhibition together with the designer Linda Aasaru. On Saturday, 14 August at 13.00 jewellery artists Julia Maria Künnap, Eve Margus-Villems and Hanna-Maria Vanaküla will discuss their work. Russian-speaking audiences are welcome to a guided tour of the show on Saturday, 14 August at 15.00, conducted by Laura Marija Brunova and the artist and designer Sandra Kosorotova.
In addition to the main exhibition, the triennial also includes an extensive satellite programme. The Windows and the Vault of the A-gallery are currently showcasing jewellery exhibitions “From the Jauntiness of Absence” and “Edge” and at the Estonian Museum of Applied Art and Design Marta Boan has recently opened her jewellery exhibition “To wear or not to wear”. The installation “In-Tangible”, inspired by the theme of the triennial is currently on view at the central square of the Noblessner quarter and in August Kai Kaljo, Darja Popolitova, Triin Kukk and Merlin Meremaa will be opening their new exhibitions.
The 7th Tallinn Applied Art Triennial is coming to end, the main exhibition at the Estonian Museum of Applied Art and Design is open until 23 July. The last exhibition of the satellite programme, “The perfect landscape. Earth, wood, fire, water”, by ceramic artist Karin Kalman is open until the beginning of August.
The exhibition, displaying wood firing, opens on Monday, 17 July at HOP Gallery (Hobusepea 2). The artist will exhibit a collage of works burnt in different firing kilns. The emphasis is on the interplay of unglazed surfaces, the work of fire, the use of different clays together and, for contrast’ sake, interposing these with white delicate porcelain pieces. The second part of the exhibition is made up of a series of wheel-thrown porcelain cups, fired over several years in different wood or gas kilns, displaying the widely divergent results one can get while using the same glazes.
The exhibition “The perfect landscape. Earth, wood, fire, water” will be open until 1 August.
