How to live? Answering this question, the artists display works in the group show inspired by their personal life and living space. They propose means of which a space could consist, enabling viewers to reconstruct lifestyles, imaginative or concrete human actions, and biographies.
Laura Põld found therapeutic relief in repetitive manual work while making her large-scale embroidered canvases. The rhythm of these abstract images recurs in the metallic retaining forms that host the works of the other two artists. Dre Britton uses deconstruction to solve the structural riddles of quotidian objects, letting the characteristics of the material guide him. Ingrid Allik’s ceramic forms and personal objects add individual character to the spaces, conveying the imagined owner’s whims and conservatism, along with her experience expressed by traces of the past and present.
