On Wednesday evening, three artists – Kadri Jäätma, Kadi Pajupuu and Heigo Jelle – opened the exhibition “Kuubis” in Haapsalu City Gallery, where three different materials are presented in one exhibition hall.

Kadri Jäätma emphasized to the visitors at the opening that all her exhibition works have been made in a wood-burning oven. “Eight years ago, a good friend invited me to build a wood-burning stove in Tubala, Hiiumaa, and every year, whenever possible, I sit by a large stove and throw a large room under the trees,” said Jäätma. The artist added that he gets his inspiration from everything that fascinates and interests him.

Heigo Jelle, who presented himself second, deals mainly with iron. The artist has said that iron is malleable when it is hot and a person can be influenced when it is charged with emotions. You can put your own story and will into the hot and formable material. “Most of the time, the work starts with the fact that I want to make something out of this piece or give some pieces a form like this or that. This is how the motives are born and the stories and meanings immediately connect to them, ”said Jelle.

According to him, the charcoal drawings on wood and textiles of Kadi Pajumaa, a participant in the third exhibition, have been inspired by a new and old will. “I’m updating textile equipment and my work is charcoal drawings on wood,” said Pajumaa.

According to the artist, behind the textile inventions is leaving the tradition or denial. “Who doesn’t know yet, I define myself as an inventor,” said Pajumaa.

According to Jäätma, the idea for the exhibition comes from Gülnar Murumäe, the director of the Haapsalu Cultural Center. “Gülnar is to blame for creating the exhibition, because he offered me the idea,” Jäätma said jokingly. “I went home and thought that it was a bit sad to put together an exhibition alone, and then I remembered that I had two good classmates, with whom we had our first group show 30 years ago in Kiek In De Kök, Tallinn,” said Jäätma.

According to the artist, the classmates gladly agreed to participate. “This is our life, our techniques and our visions of people, animals and everything else,” Jäätma said.

The exhibition is open in the city gallery from today until August 29.
