We are happy to invite Kristiina Laurits from Estonia to this project,
Eating Art. She will in her first solo-exhibition in Stockholm, with
the titel Diarium show work made of materials we daily find in food
but are not used to see in combination with jewellery, as bread, salt
and vanilla. Strictly translated from Latin, the titel Diarium means
just, day food.
me, jewellery embodies all of my desires and, always, something else
that I never knew before. The key words for my works would be transience,
moods and play. The choice of materials offered extensive variety -
from gold to salt, from diamonds to bread, from animal liver to iron.
I enjoy to play with different materials and techniques. Play is turning
reality into images, the play cannot be denied. I have taken on the
role of theatre director, who creates a performance on basis of observations
picked out from life itself.
A fairy tale.
Symbolisation is inevitably poetic."
