õli lõuendil Printsess nr 2


THE 16 ROUND PRINCESSES (ON THE PEA)2 is the illusion of artist Katrin Valgemäe's fairytale with which generations of women have grown up. The illusion of happiness, based on the grotesque reality of unhappiness - a fairytale about a promised prince on a white horse and a "whipped cream cake” bridal gown slips into an astonishing potpourri of ironically gazing women who don't seem to know what to do with the upside down fairytale (ie reality). One might think that a new generation of self-conscious 21st-century "girls" imbued with feminism have put a short end to this fairytale, but the screen-sneer of the selfie era proves the exact opposite. Is the hypnotised self-perspective of contemporary exaggerated self-centredness a zombie like metamorphosis of a broken promise?
