First of all, the students were introduced with pick-up belts it the electronic environment muis.ee of Estonian National Museum. Each participant studied the belts of the Estonian church parish of their origin and chose one to weave. Then the students learned to make tracing patterns and wove their belts according to them. Belt weaving looms and knives made by Sujuri OÜ for the UT Viljandi Culture Academy were used.

Belts were done by:

Uppsala 10, I and II floor
MonFri, 916. 

Kersti Rattus "EXPERIMENTS". Material testing for the 6th semester.
The exhibition will remain open until 5th April 2019.

Kersti Rattus is a lecturer of visual technology and painting at the University of Tartu Viljandi Culture Academy and a renowned artist and designer who has worked at the Culture Academy since 1995. She has graduated the Estonian Academy of Arts. Kersti Rattus has had numerous personal and group exhibitions in Estonia and abroad, and she has been the author of numerous stage and city designs for several major international festivals, including the Viljandi Folk Music Festival and the Tartu International Hanseatic Days.

Kersti Rattus about the exhibition: “We have tried to integrate painting skills and the use of textile materials at the University of Tartu Viljandi Culture Academy's MA curriculum on Native Crafts. The tapestry is definitely the point where painting and textiles meet the most, but the problems of a painting composition can also be explored with less time consuming technologies. The exhibition shows my spring semester preparation experiments with etching, object printing, steam-proof paper printing, and other similar techniques.”

 

 

Christmas Charity Fair revenues go to the SOS Children's Village via the Society of International Relations

On November 30 University of Tartu Christmas Charity Fair organized by the University of Tartu Centre for Arts was held for the second time.

This year's revenues - 293,1 euros all together - supported the Student Council of Faculty of Humanities and Arts (SCFHA) who  chose a student project to finance. SCFHA decided in favor of a project that support children who need it. The winner of the project contest was the Society of International Relations who said about their idea: "We decided that Christmas is the time of giving, not taking, so all the revenues will go to the SOS Children’s village."

Photos of the fair can be found from Facebook.

At the fair, one could find Christmas gifts from cookies to design jewellery sold by the staff and students of the University. Furthermore, different units and organisations of the university were selling as well.

Professional art, design and handicraft was offered by the staff, students and alumna of the UT Viljandi Culture Academy Department of Estonian Native Crafts and also by the students of Pallas University of Applied Sciences (Art UAS in Tartu) and Tartu Art School.

The profile of the goods was wide: metal, clay and textile handicraft, professional paintings and drawings, vintage and design jewellery, homemade baked goods and so much more.

There was also a pop-up café set up by the university’s academic women’s choir.

In 2016 I was a translator on United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali. I don't know if I can say that it was interesting, but the position gave me an opportunity to drive around northern Mali and meet various people. There were beauty and pain at the same time."

Mirjam Hinn's personal exhibition "Solidified Sound" in Tartu Art House 17.05-22.06.2018

On Thursday, May 17th at 6 p.m. master's student of the University of Tartu, Mirjam Hinn will open her personal exhibition “Solidified Sound” in the monumental gallery of Tartu Art House. The exhibition will remain open until June 22nd.

Hinn has previously graduated from Tartu Art College and the present exhibition is her master’s project at the University of Tartu. “Solidified Sound” is based on the phenomenon of synaesthesia that she uses to visualise sounds. Aural elements are replaced with brush strokes and layers of sound are depicted through geometric shapes filled with colour gradients.

Hinn’s works form a symbolic final graduate project (Hinn began her studies in the Department of Art): during the first years of the Painting Department the connection with Tartu’s historic roots and the output of the former art school Pallas were clear, but over the last years this foundation has been left behind in order to embrace the trends of the contemporary art world where the brush stroke is currently one of the central and defining elements.

The artist adds: “This exhibition consists of visual depictions of unnatural sounds. They have been created by people and have been lifted from their everyday context. Every sound has then gone through the artist’s personal interpretation process to become a painting. The sounds and the visuals complement each-other and become one. Although the nature of sound is to be in constant motion and transformation, they have now solidified into a material form.”

Defence of Mirjam Hinn’s master’s project will take place on 6 June. Hinn’s supervisor is Jaan Elken, artist and Professor Emeritus at the University of Tartu, assisted by artist Maarja Nõmmik.

Students' photo exhibition SEQUENCES curated by Liberal Arts Professor and Photo Artist Peeter Laurits

On Thursday, May 10th at 5pm, the photo exhibition “SEQUENCES” is opened at the University of Tartu Library. The exhibition grew out from the students’ works at the lecture series “Wild Aesthetics or How to Describe the Forest to Digital Hares” led by the photo artist and University of Tartu Professor of Liberal Arts, Peeter Laurits.

The exhibition remains open until 22nd June 2018.
Mon-Fri 10–21
Sat-Sun 12–18
In the lobby of the university library conference centre, W. Struve 1, Tartu.

In the autumn semester, students had to make photo series consisting of five pictures that needed to be somehow connected with each other either by colour, form, composition or motif. During the spring semester, students' photos were re-used to create new photo sequences.

In composing the exhibition, Professor Peeter Laurits, who is the curator of the exhibition, was helped by Marja-Liisa Plats, Jaanus Siim and Ain Protsin – the students and free listeners of his lecture series.

The organisation of the exhibition is supported by the Cultural Endowment of Estonia. Centre for Arts is thankful to the University Libabry for good cooperation. Printing of the photos was done by Seri Design.

Exhibition "Estonian traditional striped blankets" 4.04–29.06.2018

University of Tartu Centre for Arts Gallery 
in Old Anatomical Theatre Lossi str. 38, Tartu

Opening: 4 April 2018, 4 PM
Exhibition remains open till 29th June on working days from 10 AM - 5 PM  

Exhibition of blankets woven by the Estonian Native Textile students of the University of Tartu  Viljandi Culture Academy.

The exhibition displays woollen supplementary weft weave blankets copied from blankets and rugs in Estonian museums by students during the 2nd year weaving course. According to old wedding customs, the bride had to make a blanket for the bridal bed; unmarried young people slept under woollen or sheepskin coats.  Ancient woven bridal shoulder scarves were replaced by colourful striped (supplementary weft weave), chequered, patterned and embroidered blankets.

The items displayed in this exhibition have been made using traditional techniques and tools. The patterned loom-woven blankets were made according to whole or partially-preserved blankets in museums, thus giving a new life to the forgotten handicraft heritage.

In pattern-taking and weaving, the students were supervised by Christi Kütt, Lecturer in Estonian Native Textile. The curator of the exhibition is Kristi Jõeste, Programme Director and Lecturer in Estonian Native Textiles.
