Lilian Hiob captures everyday errors seen in Tallinn, the capital of Estonia, urban life by photographing them. She is interested in exploring errors that have happened due to man-made mistakes, or because of the lack of man’s interest to their surroundings. The possibility of creating a new art piece in public space makes it somehow very fascinating in its beautiful uniqueness.
Saskia Järve is captivated by the complex errors that are connected with human nature and psychology. She mixes photography and drawing to depict delusions of grandeur of people’s dreams and how it is in an erroneous relationship with the real world where we live in.
The work of Mauri Gross explores errors relating to the overvaluation of gold and money in the art world, questioning through his painting of how we should calculate the value of an artwork.
Gerli Kont is fascinated by the communication errors of the visual arts between the artist and the audience. Her drawings delicately leave spaces in the narrative to create possibilities for different interpretations.
Ulla Juske is exhibiting an installation based on one of the bizarre stories she collects. It explores implements on the verge of absurdity with the purpose of escaping from unwanted male attention.
The bringing of these five emerging artists together in London for the ERROR exhibition, aims to contribute to our comprehension of everyday encounters of errors in our lives. Paradoxically, while the discovery of errors is often considered as an irritating occurrence can their presence be said to add suspense and a shift of perspective to our own quotidian routine, thereby making our lives more interesting? Do errors have a beautiful dimension, what happens if we are able to see and accept the beauty of error? The selected artists will represent their own intentional errors – mistakes made purposeful. From photographical evidence, to paintings of distortions, the exhibition intends to play with our perceptions and to show the creative aspects of things being incorrect.
The Error Exhibition is proudly supported by the Estonian Embassy in London
