Tallinn Design House will open the photo exhibition "Kummardus" on September 20 at 6 pm in the Palm Gallery of the Rotermann Quarter as part of the Tallinn Design Festival 2023.
"Kummardus" is a photographic journey of Estonian design, where the creations of Estonian designers meet with nature and tradition. The word „kummardus“ (eng. bow) is an expression of gratitude for what we have.
The exhibition in the Palm Gallery is a homage to the crisp autumn of Estonia and its peculiar variety of colors, which extends from the treetops to the bogs. During this photo journey, we will visit Kõrvemaa's large native forests, as well as the pristine and mysterious nature of the Kakerdaja bog. The creations of Estonian designers are accompanied by traditional stories about giants and wild animals with mystical abilities, and an important role is played by reflective surfaces that convey our ancestor's belief in a layered world.
Following Estonian designers are represented at the photo exhibition: Aldo Järvsoo, Hyrv, Kaia Saarna, Liisa Soolepp, Luminée, Samelin, Studio August, Tanel Veenre, Triinu Pungits.
At the opening of the exhibition, the art director Piret Puppart will introduce the project. A welcome drink is provided by Rotermann.
The photo exhibition in the Palm Gallery will remain open until November 30, 2023.
