Krulli District, light installations of the students of the Estonian Academy of Art
The students of the Estonian Academy of Arts (EKA) open an exhibition of light installations in the new Krulli District in Kalamaja. The area is named after Franz Krull’s metal and machine manufacturing company, whose product range included cast iron, steel castings and steam boilers as well as steam locomotives and even liquor production equipment.
The installations give a new lease of life to the former industrial colossus. Visitors will be taken on a trip through the whole block and its memory lanes, trapped in the glow which takes shape, absorbs, vaporizes, flows, ripples, shimmers and shines. An unforgettable experience will await, the darkened windows will once again come to life. The timeless tale glows, holding and protecting both internal and external reflections, showing the way to an exciting future.
Participating students: Saskia Krautman, Frank Kuresaar, Karl Perens, Triin Indlo, Madli Rööp, Eva Maria Põldmäe, Triinu Väikmeri, Kadri Vahar, Anna Minchenkov, Aasa Ruukel, Elle Lepik, Vivian Ilves, Katriin Maitsalu, Laura Susanna Lätte ja Annika Emilie Viigand.
Mentor: Elo Liiv.
