PRESS RELEASE
5.12.2016
Kätrin Beljaev opens jewellery exhibition “Berberis vulgaris” in A-gallery at 6 pm on December 7th, 2016.
Kätrin Beljaev, who was recently awarded the prize of “Noor Ehe”, opens personal exhibition which can be described as naturalistic, gracing and a bit outlandish and vulgar.
Necklaces with classical mood and colorful temperament are exhibited. The visual concept is framed in classical style and festive winter colors.
Jewelry is accompanied by short text inspired by the world of novels of Bulgakov, that gives the exhibition deliberately mysterious mood.
Crystals of frost were hanging from trees in featherlike shapes and bright red berries scattered in the snow looked like drops of blood. This blood red was the only color in the monochrome bright gray winter. Wild and prickly wild barberry bushes that had been planted along the wall in 1908 had by now grown high and made the ruins impassable. Margarita was nervous and while she was walking back and forth her black silk taffeta skirt tail got constantly stuck into the barbed branches. Beautiful and wild Margarita was waiting, she didn’t know yet which of them will come to meet her.
The artist wishes to thank Kaarel Sikk, Veljo Seedre, Nikolas Mitsopoulos, Luise-Laura Vatsel, Lincona.
Exhibition is supported by the Cultural Endowment of Estonia.
