in A-gallery, Hobusepea 2, Tallinn
The newly opened Anni Kagovere author’s exhibition “Parrot Room” invites you to discover the mystery of the jewellery world and to explore the subtle soul of Anni Kagovere. Get in on the reflections where Anni shares more about what the “Parrot Room” is for her, how she was influenced by Japan for 3 years and what this odd mokumegane is.
The talk will be moderated by writer Kätlin Kaldmaa
THE PARROT ROOM
The exhibition space will become a shadowed grove, where colourful winged creatures and rare jewellery can be spotted. Precious metal mokumegane jewellery like the eyes of beasts of prey glitter behind lush greenery.
It is a fantasy journey to the parrot room in the summer cottage in the captain’s village Käsmu. The parrot room with a splendid wallpaper that has inspired many generations of artists.
The exhibition soundtrack is Helena Tulve’s opera “It is getting so dark” written on the subject of Sei Shonagon’s “Pillow Book”.
Anni Kagovere has graduated from the department of jewellery art at the Estonian Academy of Arts and obtained a MA degree in Tokyo University of the Arts. In her work, Kagovere focuses on mokumegane technique. She has held mokumegane courses at the Estonian Academy of Arts and Viljandi Culture Academy.
The exhibition will stay open until December 31, 2019.
