NOBA Nordic Baltic contemporary art platform

"Hope for life" deals with the concept of vitality, trying to highlight those forms of life and aspects of existence that a human is often unaware of. "Thus, in these works we can see admiration for the world of microorganisms that co-exists with us and our own body cells," explains Silja Truus and adds "The word the main character is humanity and what we have been telling ourselves for thousands of years. If people could give up the urge to rule over all other nature, then perhaps we would have hope to find a new relationship with life. ”

In her works, the artist deals with hidden and deeply emotional reactions to the most fundamental experiences of being human. In form, these works are often inspired by traditional art, acting simple and spontaneous. In addition to more traditional materials, such as bronze and stone, Silja has also used many found and recycled objects. From this year, Silja also works as a gallerist in the tARTu store. Silja is a member of the Estonian Sculptors’ Association.
