“Gathering is peculiar, because you see nothing but what you’re looking for. If you’re looking for bones you see only the white. No matter where you go, the only thing you see is bones.”
― Tove Jansson, The Summer Book
Laura Põld (b. 1984 in Tallinn, Estonia) has been the guest artist at Atelierhaus Höherweg e. V. from January until March and will now present her paintings and objects which she presents within a painting-installation titled “So small it could be mine”. Põld is showing her first stage of an ongoing project that is related to the biography and work of the Finnish novelist, painter and illustrator Tove Jansson.
Laura Põld received her MA from the Department of Painting at the University of Tartu and previously studied ceramics at the Estonian Academy of Arts. Põld is known for her staged landscapes and site specific installations that are sensitive to medium. Her work crosses distant locations based on cultural and autobiographical context. In past years she has shown in Austria, Estonia, Germany, Denmark, Japan and elsewhere.
The artist thanks Lukas Eggerth, Verena Freyschmidt, Jussi Koitela, The Cultural Endowment of Estonia, Atleiers Höherweg e.V. for their support.
