THE PARROT ROOM

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”.

IN GOOD TIME

At her exhibition IN GOOD TIME the author presents jewellery and utensils created in Japanese metalworking procedure called mokumegane. The works made in this technique greatly differ from the usual high-gloss polished metal objects – the multicoloured surfaces of the mokumegane objects have an organic effect. Multilayered patterns draw our full attention while inviting us to follow the lines and tracks seen in the material.   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.
