Exhibition “Secret Lives” in Warsaw

Written by Kadri Naanu on . Posted in News, News of Centre

Exhibition Secret Lives featuring Estonian illustrators was opened on February 5th, 2020 in Warsaw Puppet Theater (Teatr Lalka) in Poland. The exhibition will be open until the end of March. 

The exhibition features works from Estonian artists Viive Noor, Kadi Kurema, Regina Lukk-Toompere and Urmas Viik. All of these artists are renowned illustrators in Estonia and their works are known outside of their home country as well. In addition to working with illustrations, they are all involved in many other areas of art (painting, printmaking, photography etc.) They all have a clearly distinctive handwriting when they create their own secret world – very fairy-tale like and very personal. The exhibition allows a brief glimpse into these secret worlds.

The exhibition has previously been shown in Paris, Strasbourg, and Tel Aviv. The Estonian Embassy in Warsaw celebrates Estonian independence Day with the exhibition.

Organizers: Estonian Children’s Literature Centre and Estonian Embassy in Warsaw.
