WHO: artists in Europe involved in all areas of applied art and design without geographic restrictions. The triennial is open to both professionals and university students. The artist must hold the copyright to his or her own work, and the work may not have been created under an academic supervisor.
WHAT: KNOW HOW, the theme of the fifth Tallinn applied art triennial, will challenge participants to cast aside artist-, designer- and producer-centred approaches, to share their professional know-how, and to offer exhibition visitors an opportunity to (re-)create the items themselves. The exhibition welcomes high-quality designs where the designer is behind the concept and form – but the actual production of the items makes a transition to the users. Artists will be requested to submit to the exhibition a (sample) work as well as instructions on how to make it. Both will be put on display. The instructions should not merely be a description of how the work was created, but rather a manual for the exhibition visitor explaining how to re-create the object. Text and photographs can be used, as well as freehand and computer graphics, stencilling, and many other techniques. The exhibition will also have a website where virtual visitors will be able to download manuals. The exhibition catalogue will feature the sample works as well as instructions on how to make them.
WHEN: 13 Nov 2009-21 Feb 2010.
PAYMENTS: a jury will award one grand prize of EEK27,000 and two prizes of EEK 17,000 each.
