7th Recycling Art Exhibition

Marta Marce, Mireya Maso (Catalonia) ja Urmo Raus (Estonia)

March 29 - June 2, 2019

The series of exhibitions have become an annual tradition, this year the theme is ME AND THE WORLD
The theme is in accordance with the very actual climate change,

The special guest is Kristiina Tikke Tuura from Finland who has dedicated her artwork to sorting of garbage and making art from it. Kristiina Tikke Tuura’s „Giants Lantern“ is inspired from the lanterns and lamps of Syria. The artwork is a reverence to the masterful traditional handicraft of the destroyed country, inspired of the spirit of folktales. Under the guidance of the artist herself, you are welcome to her workshop in Pärnu.
Together with the artists there are also students from the Estonian Art Academy and Pallas Art College with their novel ideas.
The theme ME AND THE WORLD has come up to the artists so that the materials of their artworks are surprising. An architect has grabbed old woollen socks for his material, a painter – wooden doors saved from fire, metal artist – the palettes of colours, textile artist – fishing nets from the sea. The exhibition gives a lot to discover and inspiration, for every object flying towards the garbage bin can be recycled.

The exhibition for the whole family GIVE A NEW LIFE has become a traditional art event in Pärnu. One of the aims of the exhibition is to change the way of thinking, evaluating recycling and seeing preciousness in the things thrown away, if not for yourself then for others. Sometimes you get a useful thing from something old or thrown away. A problem for our environment are also leftovers from production of which artists, through fresh glance, can design something new.
