There is something about those Estonians…

January 28, 2013 § Leave a comment



Last week I had the pleasure to visit Oslo to see the exhibition From the Coolest Corner. It is a touring exhibition conceived as a follow-up of the successful Nordic jewellery exhibitions in 1996/7 and 2002/3. Each Nordic country as well as Estonia is thoroughly presented at the exhibition. A total of 159 works by 61 artists were selected for the exhibition. The exhibition will go on a two year long tour so if you are lucky you might be able to see it. From The Coolest Corner will be shown in The Museum of Decorative  Art and Design in Oslo, The Design Museum in Helsinki, The Designmuseum in Copenhagen, The Estonian Museum of Applied Art and Design in Tallin, The Röhsska Museum of Design and Applied Arts in Gothenburg and in Galerie Handwerk in Munich, during Schmuck 2015.

I was truly impressed by the work of some Estonian artists in the exhibition and I would like to share some pieces with you from Tanel Veenre, Kadri Mälk, Maarja Niinemägi and Julia Maria Kunnap. There is something very mysterious and poetic about these pieces. I am looking forward to seeing more work from these artists and I hope you will get to see them in real life!
