Singing souvenirs, 2017


Plywood, colour, loudspeaker

This project is about the culture and the “good Estonian artefacts”. It reflects historical backgrounds and is made to teach something from Estonia. There is a magnetic contactor in the shoulder part, so when the figures connect, they start singing in their unique voices like a choir. They have also a vocal tone and sing in sopran, alto, bass and tenor.


The artwork is participating in MyEstonia? competition
'My Estonia?' calls for reflections on Estonia through the eyes of foreigners. For some participants, Estonia might be a chapter of their lives, for others it may evoke more arbitrary associations or Malevich “Black Square” type of interpretations - all in all, the competition looks for a wide array of playful approaches.

A selection of works from the competition participated in  ArtVilnius ´18 on 7-9 June 2018. 
Online voting to identify the winner of the Public Choice Award took place at art platform from 28 June until 12 July. See all participating artworks and the results of the competition HERE!
