"I have used the comparison of [---] perforated skin, which does not cover, hide or adorn but rather hints at the internal." – Reet Varblane answers Hedi Rosma's questions about Anu Põder, whose works have been included in "The Milk of Dreams", the main exhibition of the ongoing 59th International Venice Art Biennale. "Untold backstories: Anu Põder (1947–2013) and her posthumous rise to international fame" (KUNST.EE 3/2022)


Visual semiotic approach to Jaan Elken’s Poem for mattress, no 1

Rauno Thomas Moss (3-4/2010)

Jaan Elken has led the Estonian Artists’ Association since 1999, but what is so phenomenal about his paintings? KUNST.EE ordered a semiotic assessment from Rauno Thomas Moss.
While referring to Charles Sanders Peirce, one can say that this expressive painting surpasses the conventional. The artist has made a qualitative leap by changing all the metaphors that the remake of the mattress could potentially symbolize in the current context of the art world. Therefore, I find that internal art processes are more important. Playing with alienation is important – and the game is honest and interesting.
