Contemporary jewellery exhibition OBSERVA(C)TION will be opening on Thursday, 18th of May at 3 PM in the Russian Theatre. The exhibition displays the works of the second course students of the Jewellery and Blacksmithing Department of the Estonian Academy of Arts.
OBSERVA(C)TION is an analysis of human behavioral patterns and everyday rituals. Whether it is a candid or public observation, whether oneself or others are being observed, or whether one allows oneself to be observed – all these questions will be expressed in the displayed works.

The exhibition features the following artists: Anastassia Nikitina, Claudia Lepik, Liisbeth Kirss, Liina Lelov, Kätlin Kokk, Veronika Ovsyannikova, Sigrid Kuusk, Ljubov Kedrina, Marilin Laas (glass art), Kaia Ansip, Liisbet Linntamm.
