Intro
The artists Katarina and Kalle Kotselainen are exploring the relationship between the body and jewellery with the wearer and the viewer through the exhibition Body Glow II in A-Gallery.

Artist list

Kalle Kotselainen, Katarina Kotselainen
Body glow is something that is physically close to the wearer, but also what they want to convey to others around them. One person may use jewellery to attract, using its gentle nature to invite you to approach and take a closer look. Another may use its thorny heart to repel instead.

The exhibition is inspired by Shibari -the art of Japanese rope bondage- and antique masks. Katarina and Kalle Kotselainen approached this theme by choosing suitable mediums for them; forging, embossing, enamel, and filigree.

Katarina Kotselainen has studied at the Estonian Academy of Arts in the jewellery and blacksmithing department and has participated in exhibitions around the world since 2001. Her works are in private collections in Estonia, Finland, and the USA. She is a member of the Estonian Artists Association since 2008.

Kalle Kotselainen has been designing and making jewellery from precious metals for over ten years. He graduated from Vana-Vigala TTK in 2019, specializing in Blacksmithing. His works are in the Kalevipoja Museum in Kääpa and in the Saatse Seto Museum. He is also the founder of Tuletuul OÜ.

The Cultural Endowment of Estonia supports the exhibition.

The artists wish to thank Krista, Mare, and Jens.

Opening hours: Monday to Friday: 10 am-6 pm. Saturday: 11 am-4 pm.
