Pärnu Summer of Art 2018: Alice in Wonderland

Pärnu Summer of Art will be held for the 17th time this year, bringing the créme de la créme of Estonian art to Pärnu.

Opening on Saturday, June 2 at 4 p.m. at Pärnu City Gallery, Town Hall (Uus 4) and at 5 p.m. "Five O'Clock Tea" at the Pärnu Artists' House (Nikolai 27).

Eveli Varik, curator of the exhibition:

"The revelations of parallel worlds through the vision of the creators have been interested me for some time now. In this life, we have already become so intelligent through collective consciousness that we do not deny the diverse parallel worlds. They exist right here beside us, within the reach, films are made, books are written, visual art is created about them.

Parallel worlds are closely related to the special existence of the multi-faceted perception (term of Valdur Mikita) of a human being. Of course, if we are able to maintain our singularity in this society. It seems that among creative people the multi-faceted perception is a premise without even mentioning it in any way. We are just existing and creating, we enter into so familiar space and state that is a much more important world than the one in which we live. There are many limitations in the "real world" that must be adhered to in order to exist. Staying in the parallel world is inevitable and there one can do as they please, often reflecting what or who we really are or who we have been and what we remember so that we will not have to think about it. We let it all up and running. Take a step outside ourselves, look around, discover ourselves from somewhere else and create based on that.

The Summer of Art hopes to create a unique mystery of the parallel worlds of several artists."
