Waste and Insanity, 2017

42x59.4cm
Silk screen printed pisters, found paper, tape

‘Waste and Insanity’ is a silk screen printed poster series and installation about the Estonian Punk culture in the early 90s. It is based on the private photo archive of a member of this subculture in the post-Soviet era. Recycling is an important aspect in the series insofar as it was the way for the Punks in Estonia to create their own expressive style by transforming mainstream clothes into individual pieces. As a result the posters are printed on found paper, that brings it’s own content to the series.

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 NOAR.eu art platform from 28 June until 12 July. See all participating artworks and the results of the competition HERE!
