Vana-Võromaa Culture House presents Marilyn Piirsalu and Kadi Pajupuu's textile exhibition "Series of Thought".

Textile exhibition The series of thoughts depicts thoughts divided into three thematic zones, where the birth logic and the procedure of coexistence inherent in textiles support the substantive aspirations of the works: how to speak to the viewer, awaken moments of co-experience and recognitions.

Imaging. Reflection. Marilyn Piirsalu (b. 1981) completed a series of carpets for this exhibition, where a thoughtful loner is placed on an airy background, the colors are under a variety. Morning coffee drinker, paper plane watcher, chicken meeting in the mirror, Mimi with a nudity tattoo, pottery, home planted in a spacious landscape. The series is about asceticism and the luxury of dreaming, the depiction of which is intentionally combined with the forced clumsiness of a braid and a free-riding line that embroideres and retells embroidery.

Kadi Pajupuu (b. 1963) exhibits one work from the last century. “I chose this rug because the work” Sustainable Prevention “dealt with the same dreamy themes as Marilyn’s rugs today and also the visual technique: an element loaded with meaning on a simple background is somehow similar.”

Invention. Jonn The authors’ work in Kadipuu includes art projects and the invention and sale of textile equipment. The exhibition The series of measurements presents textiles woven with RailReed, a unique tool invented by Kadi, where the controlled change of the warp density creates flowing lines and the change of the fabric density during weaving allows to create controlled structural changes in the fabric.

Tissue loops escaping from the surface create a series of furry wild fabrics, here too, stuborness creates a textile with a different look with the usual and expected technicality. The MultiWeave technique has also emerged from the tradition of weaving against tradition: a fabric weaving method in which the weft yarn is guided to spin around temporarily supported warp loops in a freely chosen way. MultiWeave is part of an applied research conducted at the Pallas College of Art.
