NOAR Nordic and Baltic contemporary art platform

Cold Estonian heart, 2017


Meat in snow, photo print

A widely used stereotype is that Estonians are cold people. That was one of the reasons the artist came here. For him it takes time to open up himself and he also doesn’t like to smile without reason. Because of that in Hungary he felt himself like an alien, but in Estonia not anymore. He feels comfortable between Estonians and in his view they are helpful and honest people, but you have to give time to melt the meat.


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.

A selection of works from the competition participated in  ArtVilnius ´18 on 7-9 June 2018. 
Online voting to identify the winner of the Public Choice Award took place at art platform from 28 June until 12 July. See all participating artworks and the results of the competition HERE!
