Intro
There is POP at the intersection of Hansel's and Hanna's navels – the desire to disburden one's heart with cleansed imagery.

Artist list

Hansel Tai, Hanna-Maria Vanaküla
Is Hansel's and Hanna's world flat or round?

These worlds are both flat and round. Once you feel that you have reached the edge from where there is nothing else to do than fall –
aaaah! - into the galactic abyss. Yet, then you will see the strength and tension of the core, the navel is nicely in its place, everything seems to be whirling around its axis. There is POP at the intersection of Hansel 's and Hanna's navels – the desire to disburden one's heart with cleansed imagery.
 
Hansel's navel is in its extreme cultivation. In his work, naturalness has been shadowed by body cult, deformation, subcultural signs and
high gloss metal. At the same time, instead of the artist's hand the rolled traces of eruptions tell us about physical laws and the rolling mill. However, complicated constructions and nipple rings have pulled the image again back to the (sub)cultural space. Hansel is rationally irrational – the natural tones he has used have been tuned to the most estranging futuristic bitter green. When to think about it, nature has actually other colours than mellow green – for instance, some beetles are wearing strikingly super metallic green shells. So the Hansel's Prince Albert is simultaneously a fairy-tale prince and a genital exhibitionist.
 
Hanna's navel is in focus. While having moved towards simplicity and precision, she has reached the minimal compositions made of eyeglasses' lens. Even if engraving and especially polishing acrylic glass is the test of
outmost patience, the result of the artist's work is digitally light. Cool consideration replaces the strains of being human. Steel wire rope as a guillotine unifying roundness. Scarce and strikingly precise. The words are unnecessary.
