Rita-Livia Erikson “Expectations”

Rita Livia Erikson 17.11–11.12.2017

On Friday, 17 November at 6pm jewellery artist Rita-Livia Erikson will open her first personal exhibition “Expectations” in A-Gallery.

„Jewellery created for this exhibition was born through pondering what and how I expect from myself in everyday life and from my future, and what I tend to think others expect from me. Expectations often sound as sentences in my head – I either say them to myself or assume someone else to think them about me. Any one of them can be a motivation as well as a force that breaks down the will to act with its unrealisticness. There are aspirations that may seem too weak to satisfy even low expectations. There are recommendations that are given so that by listening to them the result could match (perhaps someone else’s) expectations. There are criteria that I expect only myself to fill. Trying to meet expectations can make you lose your path, clear mind, and control over yourself and your life. From the insane quantity of expectations you have to be able to find and create those colorful sparkly fragments – understandings, points, goals, moments.“

Exhibition will stay open until December 11, 2017.
