Hungary: Anneli Tammik, Kristi Paap etc. 'Living Jewellery' in Budapest 4 - 25 June

04.06.2009

The exhibition 'Living Jewellery' was completed in cooperation with the Estonian Institute and Magma Gallery. It introduces the work of contemporary Estonian and Hungarian jewellery artists. Hungary is represented by Márta Edőcs and Fanni Király and Estonia by Anneli Tammik and Kristi Paap.

The displayed works are united by the artists' common approach to the topic and material – shaping natural forms into jewellery they also used untraditional materials.

'Jewellery Box', the animated film made for the exhibition, creates a special graphic world to complement the jewellery. The author of the film and curator of the exhibition is Szilvia Nyitrai.

Anneli Tammik's jewellery relies on two motifs – spiral and snowflakes. The spiral together with a circle is one of the basic patters of the universe. It is the symbol of all cyclical movement and the metaphor of the passage of life. The series of snowflakes was completed in cooperation with Ketli Tiitsar and Maria Valgma.

Kristi Paap's works are part of her so-called childhood 'Permission to Grow Up', and her last collection, 'Grass Blades are but a Moment'. The sources of inspiration of the 'Permission' series are the photographs of four artists about their childhood. 'Grass Blades' consists of a herbarium of necklaces and breastpins, a manipulation with organic forms and lifeless materials. The collection was influenced by the childhood cherry orchard, which is now abandoned.

The exhibition is opened on 4 June at 19.00 by the actor Gabriella Hámori.

Magma Gallery (Petőfi Sándor 11) is open M-F 10-19, Sat 10-15.
