Piret Hirv is one of the standard-bearers of Estonian jewelry. International audiences will identify her as part of the trail-blazing õhuLoss collective, and will know her powerfully melancholy low-reliefs in silver: paper-thin silver shrouds draped over passing souls.

 

What I will share

Humans transform their surroundings to mirror themselves; transforming it to be not only habitable, but a place worth living.  Simultaneously, while lost in the process and often unknowingly, there is a construction of the self - a near-imitation replaced again and again.

Marked places become foundational geneses made by their own hands, and new identities become the constant, built on layers upon layers of their own faces: the very elements of what the universe is made of.
