Intro
The great exhibition of Estonian contemporary jewellery. Students from Estonian Academy of Arts – Department of Jewellery and Blacksmithing - and õhuLoss group show their creations in Israel.
Students from the Estonian Academy of Arts Department of Jewellery and Blacksmithing and the õhuLoss group set their works into the environment of Israel in order to introduce Estonian jewellery and nature of our intellectual culture through ritualized behavior. It is one of the biggest exhibitions about estonian contemporary jewellery – it shows 150 pieces from the students, graduates and õhuLoss group from the last ten years.

The members of õhuLoss
(professor Kadri Mälk, Tanel Veenre, Piret Hirv, Eve Margus-Villems, Kristiina Laurits, Villu Plink) are all alumni of the Estonian Academy of Arts and four of them work as teachers in the same department. On 8th May takes place a lecture of professor Kadri Mälk and Tanel Veenre about Estonian jewellery. Piret Hirv and Tanel Veenre gives as well a five-days workshop.

By exploring the deep, regulative impact of rituals that help us discover existential values and collective consciousness, the artists develop insight into our identity and the uniqueness of the Nordic mind.

"Today RITUAL is a well-masked frame, where everyone is dealing with their own personal invariant which stabilizes the unsettled nature of human kind.“ -Kadri Mälk
