WWWA [Words & Works from a World Away (Sõnad ja tööd sealt kaugelt)]Estonian Museum of Applied Art & Design
A collaboration of Estonian and Australian jewellery artists
WWWA - estonia
OPENING 7 november 2014 – 5pm
Kuraator: Claire McArdle

What do they say about us on the other side of the world?
And what do you know about them?
This exhibition unites the northern and southern hemispheres through the work of jewellery and object artists from Australia & Estonia. In each country statements were collected from ordinary members of the public about their knowledge and opinion of the other country. Each artist chose a statement about their country from someone on the other side of the world. The piece they made is a reaction to this statement.
Words spoken across the globe invite a personal study of our own culture and a reaction to other’s perceptions of who we are. Each piece is a navigation of an outsider’s perspective and the resulting realisations and revelations about our own identity.
The two cultures have been explored through unverified perceptions and understandings. The resulting objects are repositories of both cultural and personal narratives. They examine the global flow of information between two physically and culturally separate countries and provoke an international exploration of self.

EXPO ‘Australian Jewelry TOPOS’ – Gallery Loupe, Montclair (New Jersey, US) – 10 Mars-2 Avril 2011

« The theme of « topos » (place) is explored through a diverse and fascinating group of jewelry objects. The group will be joined by Professor Elizabeth Grierson, Head of the School of Art, RMIT University, and Professor Robert Baines, PhD, Postgraduate Coordinator of the Gold and Silversmithing Department.
“Jewelry is a bearer of cultural and historical meaning and memory. In particular it is concerned with the relations of those meanings with the personal and urban settings, acting as a way of defining and interpreting ‘topos’ (meaning ‘of place’, Greek). The concern of this jewelry research is to recognise and explore the ways the jewelry artefact opens our engagement with, and understanding of, the personal and external places we inhabit. Jewelry conveys settings of human identity and presence as well as external settings such as urban spaces and ‘topos’ takes on a broader significance as place itself becomes an expanded notion. Jewelry Topos explores the ways jewelry engages with our understanding of the physical and metaphorical places we inhabit.”

« PERSONAL AND UNIVERSAL, SUBCONSCIOUS AND SUBMERGED, MY WORK IS AN EXTENSION OF MY INTIMATE SPACE OF BODILY EXPERIENCE, MEMORY AND EMOTION, ARTICULATED THROUGH UNDERWATER AND SUBCONSCIOUS LANDSCAPES WHERE ONE EXPERIENCES AND IS MINUTELY AND WHOLLY PART OF THEIR SHIFT AND FLOW.
I LIKE TO TAKE A SMALL, UNSEEABLE OR TAKEN FOR GRANTED ASPECT OF NATURE OR HUMANITY AND TURN IT INTO SOMETHING NEW AND PERSONAL, IN ORDER TO BRING THE VIEWERS ATTENTION TO THESE PHENOMENA. I BELIEVE AND HOPE THAT THIS CREATES A NEW UNDERSTANDING OF THE NATURE OF THE ORIGINAL OBJECT OR SUBJECT OF REFERENCE. SOMETIMES IT CAN BE LIKE SEEING SOMETHING FOR THE FIRST TIME.
THE THEME OF WATER FLOWS LIKE AN UNDERCURRENT THROUGH MOST OF MY WORK, WHILE EACH OBJECT I MAKE MAY TELL A DIFFERENT STORY. DRAWING REFERENCES FROM MYTHICAL STORIES OF JAPANESE FISHERMAN AND GUARDIANS OF THE OCEAN AND THE EXPLORERS WHO SAILED TO THE EDGE OF THE EARTH ONLY TO DISCOVER IT WAS ROUND, TO THE PHYSICS AND DYNAMICS OF CURRENTS AND WAVES, WHAT I TRY TO EXPRESS IS THE INDESCRIBABLE FEELING OF BEING, THROUGH BODILY EXPERIENCE, MEMORY AND EMOTION.
I THINK BECAUSE I USED TO DREAM ABOUT BEING ABLE TO BREATHE UNDERWATER THERE IS ALWAYS A POWERFUL AND DEEP EMOTIONAL INVOLVEMENT IN EACH PIECE I MAKE. THESE DREAMS WERE LIKE A REASSURANCE OF PERSONAL STRENGTH AND ABILITY TO COPE WITH THE THINGS THAT THREATEN TO DRAG ONE UNDER. THE OCEAN SWELLS, RISING AND FALLING LIKE IT IS BREATHING. EMOTION SWELLS, AND SOMETIMES WE FEEL AS THOUGH WE DROWN IN GRIEF, OR BUBBLE OVER WITH HAPPINESS. THESE METAPHORICAL ASSOCIATIONS ARE NOT ACCIDENTAL IN MY WORK.
WITH EMOTION AND EXPERIENCE AS THE FOUNDATIONS, I HOPE THAT I PROVOKE POSITIVE RESPONSES FROM WITHIN THE VIEWER, READER AND COLLECTOR, EVEN IF ONLY IN SOME SMALL WAY. I OFFER THIS AS AN ALTERNATIVE TO THE BLUNT, ONE-SIDED STATEMENTS AND ULTIMATUMS THAT ART AND ARTISTS ARE OFTEN NOTORIOUS FOR BECAUSE I BELIEVE THAT CHANGE COMES FROM WITHIN.
FOR ME JEWELLERY IS A WAY TO CREATE PERSONAL NARRATIVES THAT SAY SOMETHING ABOUT THE NATURE AND PERSONALITY OF BOTH MAKER AND WEARER. IT IS A TWO-WAY PERSONAL EXCHANGE THROUGH WHICH I HOPE TO FACILITATE A RETHINKING OF WAYS OF LIVING AND INTERACTING WITH EACH OTHER AND OUR SURROUNDINGS.
MY MOST RECENT BODY OF WORK IS CONCEPTUALLY LOCATED WITHIN THE ESTONIAN WORD ÄÄREMAA, AND IF IT WERE TO BE TRANSLATED INTO ENGLISH, WOULD RELATE TO ‘PERIPHERY’, ALTHOUGH NOT MERELY IN A GEOGRAPHICAL SENSE: THE ESTONIAN WORD ÄÄREMAA EXTENDS BEYOND THIS TO ENCOMPASS THE METAPHYSICAL, THE EMOTIONAL, THE UNTOUCHABLE, A LOCATION THAT EXISTS IN LANGUAGE, IS CREATED BY LANGUAGE. » (Anita van Doorn)
