Annual exhibition of the Estonian Glass Artists’ Union "Legendary Times"
12.11.2023 - 9. 03.2024
Earth has been shaken off its axis, and we find ourselves once more
living in an era of legends and fairy tales. Before our very eyes,
new heroes and new villains are born; an evil cook turns his ladle in
the Kremlin, and a ghost dashes about in the sky above Kiev.
legend can sometimes be scary and nightmarish, but ultimately, its
purpose is to give hope - to segment a confusing time into
intelligible stories with a beginning and an end; to give meaning to
lives lost, to show light at the end of the tunnel. In both love and
war, the victory belongs to one who tells the more believable story.
legend can let you escape daily drudgery, to visit mysterious sights
and creatures. A legend allows you to see connections between the
past and the present; to view a landscape from the perspective of an
eagle or that of a frog; to learn from others’ mistakes once in a
while. Thus, it shapes every human being’s unique inner cosmos, and
gives birth to new legends.
