TOO MUCH / LIIGA PALJU
Triin Kukk and Erinn M. Cox
We always want more. We are constantly overwhelmed and filled with confusion and excitement of
how to think, feel and react to what happens to us and around us. We conjure images and words that
blur the edges of reality, often falling into obsessions where we can’t seem to get enough, to express
enough. We crave reckless love, endless joy, unbounding truths, and fantastical experiences; all the
while unsuccessfully fighting the temptation to fully follow our wants and wishes. But when do we say
something is too much? Where is the line between what is sufficient and what is excessive when our
hearts and guts beg for an endless more?
Triin Kukk is an Estonian jewellery artist, currently obsessed with stones. She finished her MA
studies in the department of jewellery and blacksmithing at the Estonian Academy of Arts this spring. Recently, Triin was awarded with one of the Galerie Marzee Graduate Prizes.
