Intro
Viktorija is an artist and a starting freelance curator. She has received a bachelor's degree in jewellery and blacksmithing from the Estonian Academy of Arts, where she is currently finishing her master's degree in design and applied art. Connecting through emotions in her artistic work and possessing strong organisational skills, developed while being a student representative of the Academy, have led her to start curating exhibitions. Viktorija’s main goal is to create delightful and peculiar expositions enhancing the beauty of the artworks themselves.

Statement

I will be brutally honest, I do not believe that an object can fully speak about itself. A piece of art is physical matter that requires a viewer to become strong as well as vulnerable for understanding it. The idea can be explained in a few sentences, but to actually understand the piece, and find both my own life and yours in it, will take more than just a few lines.
A viewer has to listen, read, object, recognise a lie, feel betrayal, admit failure, look for a solution and find analogy to his own life, in order to detect the countless ideas and confessions between these lines.

Concept jewellery, installations and performances are an expression of anything infecting me with a need to purify my soul, by reliving emotions. I want to help people with physical and mental despair, to speak for the broken ones in order for them to finally feel acceptance of past events.

I want to create and acknowledge other people creations. I feel the need to show them to the world in best light possible, alongside indulging in a dialog between us – creators, and them – viewers. Because we need both, to achieve something spectacular.
