NOAR Nordic and Baltic contemporary art platform

2mg of glucose + 2mg of vitamin C, 2018


Two paintings, each 90 x 90 cm, acrylic on canvas

The artist´s comment on the artwork: “The work is a diptych, saying stop/enough to the hard times. My grandmother told me that in her days depression was treated with a cocktail of glucose and vitamin C for 10 days. The first image that came to my mind was a “stop” tape and that is how the work was born. My first impression about Estonian people was that they were calm, rational, knowing what they want. This work for me represents the wisdom that I see in Estonians.”


The artwork is participating in MyEstonia? competition
'My Estonia?' calls for reflections on Estonia through the eyes of foreigners. For some participants, Estonia might be a chapter of their lives, for others it may evoke more arbitrary associations or Malevich “Black Square” type of interpretations - all in all, the competition looks for a wide array of playful approaches.
