Exhibition "Silver Documents: Artisan Pendant Shields from the 17th to 19th Centuries"

Niguliste Museum, St. Nicholas' Church, Tallinn

Centuries ago, becoming a master craftsman was associated with many rituals. One of them was the donation of a silver coin or a silver object to the craft guild. From the 17th century onward, it became a tradition to donate a small silver shield engraved with the name of the master and the year and date of becoming a master. The middle of the shield usually depicted the emblem of the craft. These small shields were hung on a welcome cup of the craft guild, which is why they are called pendant shields. Due to the textual and visual information, these shields can be perceived as documents in silver.

Physics and Phantasma

Kanuti Gildi SAAL, Tallinn

Kanuti Gildi SAAL's "Physics and Phantasma" devotes itself to the function, production and need of fantasy. To fantasize is a technical ability beyond good and evil; it is the setting for our desire and a necessary tool for us to become what we call whole subjects. At the same time, it is the basis of any revolutionary potential and the foundation of racist prejudice. In the thinking of this piece, the phantasmatic is at most a defense mechanism, enabling us to comprehend the inconsistencies of the world.
