The initial sense of the study of chaos was the attempt to find simple rules for the universe that surrounds us. The effort was always to look for simple explanations of complex realities.
- Mandelbrot

The exhibition in the HOP gallery shows two young artists playing with miniatures and structures. In a way they’re trying to sort out chaos. It’s a silent agreement and to understand it they’re giving the viewer a code: oOo.o.oOo. The artists are testing the fragility of materials and searching for the most intense moment between staying and breaking. The keywords to their co-operation are aesthetics and invitation to notice the small. A purpose of its own is to preserve usage valuable functional form for the ascetic and geometrical jewelry-objects and ceramic ware. 
I found minimalistic form simple and natural, it seemed too perfect to break it. I have also gathered inspiration from the most common everyday dishes like tin cups and saucepans, which have fascinated me with their ascetics and simplicity. I have played with interpretation of old objects and transformed the ideas into porcelain in my other works as well. The dishes are made of porcelain and they’re miniature, most of all created as a game of minimalistic elements, but at the same time they have not lost their functionality.
A few years ago we met with Marta from Spain in Tallinn and we discovered that we’re on a similar quest. I found her work to have very inspiring effect especially with their exiguity and search for structure.

To appreciate the details, to see what is hidden and unnoticed, often it's also the most important and significant what speaks in silence. Stopping and watching, to stop for an instant the movement.
Fixing what speed blurs, in what the speeded movement makes that gets lost. To listen the silence. To see the invisible. It is the essence and not the appearance, it is the contents and not the continent. From geometrical jewelry, observing the universal, to find that different.
- Marta Boan
