The Art Of Collecting
Senior Lecturer Mah Rana is one of 70 international artists from 515 submissions who have been shortlisted for the Tallinn 6th Applied Arts Prize.
As an international art event, the goal of the Tallinn Applied Art Triennial is to offer a new, topical and unexpected focus, which will serve to help examine contemporary applied art and design practices on as broad a scale as possible.
The Art of Collecting:
Collecting is a human activity that does not cease to fascinate. Anything can be an object for collecting, from worn-out everyday utensils to the most desirable works of art. We collect things as a pastime, as a mission in life, or just because we can’t help it. Any kind of collection establishes links between the collected items and constructs borders between what is in the collection
On the 20th November from 10.00 till 6.00pm Mah will exhibit and present her "Meanings and Attachments” at the Solaris Center (Estonia pst 9, Tallinn)
Meanings and Attachments,(2001-present) an ongoing written/audio and photographic record of people’s personal connections to the jewellery that they wear. This global project reflects the importance of owning, giving and wearing jewellery throughout our lives.
