The exhibition is dedicated to my grandfather Herman who was a jeweller and a watchmaker in the pre-WWII Tallinn.  There is the Cinematographers’ Society building in the place where his shop used to be, so it is impossible to determine its location more precisely.    

Although I never had the chance to meet my grandfather, his unfinished works and experiments have followed me for my whole life.  I wanted to finish some of them and give them a form according to my own vision.  I hope that Grandpa wouldn’t have minded.

The objects became anonymous shadowy forms for unknown people for whom Grandpa had been making monograms.

The exhibition is supported by Cultural Endowment of Estonia.
Many thanks to Maria, Johannes, Paul, Adolfas, Mari, Anneli, Karin.
