SILDID: MinuEesti?  

February 23rd, 2018


Paper, Metal binding

“February 23rd” is a 34 page A6 retrospect of the evening before the Estonian 100 year Independence Day (February 24th). It recollects a personal, non-Estonian, perspective of the events that unfolded leading up to the celebration, including photographs in and around the Old Town, text, and drawings of the artist’s physical movement taken on the evening as a hyper-memory of the sensation of Estonian camaraderie.


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!
