EIGHT

September 8 - October 7, 2018

Ceramics

Eight stories. Eight Estonian and Finnish artists, linked by long-term friendship and professional interests.

We have made ceramics together, organized exhibitions, discussed the world. Central to our common activities stand the wood-fired pottery kilns in Kohila, Vósu and Pikavere, Estonia, and Sylvi in Pielavesi, Finland.

As part of and in preparation for the present exhibition we are also planning a wood-firing session in Pikavere, in order to add some kiln-hot pieces to our display. Taking part in the exhibition are ceramic artists Susanna Hotari, Jaana Pietikäinen, Susanna Tyrväinen(ceramic and glass) and Jenny Linnove from Finland and ceramic artists Kersti Laanmaa, Karin Kalman, Urmas Bereczki, and graphic artist Tiit Rammul from Estonia.

Eight(8) is an interesting number. The sideways 8 is the symbol of infinity, but at the same time it could represent the crossing paths trod by people who often traverse the (imaginary) bridge between Estonia and Finland.

Giving free rein to our fantasy around the 100th anniversary of the independent states of Estonia and Finland, we can see the sideways eight also as two entwined zeroes after the number 1. That´s our way to celebrate the anniversary of both our states.


The exhibition is supported by the Town of Pärnu, Estonian Cultural Endowment, South -Savo county ja Pielävesi commune.
