AUGUST 27 – SEPTEMBER 20
ART EVENT: Liisi Eelmaa: Abrakadabra, Tartu
Liisi Eelmaa opens her solo exhibition “I Create What I Think – ABRACADABRA” in the large gallery of the Tartu Art House. Eelmaa’s latest works have focused on researching the specific characteristics of paintings: the relationships between matter, form, space and images. The exhibition “I Create What I Think – ABRACADABRA” is a continuation of her earlier series “Gently in the Air”. The artist adds: „One of the most famous magical formulas is „abracadabra”. It is thought that in Aramaic it can be translated as “I create as I speak”. Thinking is magical, every item that surrounds us has started from thinking. Objects around us are either functional or of little practical use. Abstract paint, substance, beginning – ABRACADABRA.”
