About Mapping My Mother

This work travels together with me: I recreate it at locations, which resonate with the ideas of the work. It has started back in my hometown in Estonia, where I develop a new body of work about social heritage of the famous textile mill, which closed down in 2008. I revisit a collection of my mother’s designs, which she created while she was working for the mill. The first piece I made is located on the wall of Narva Art Residency, a building, which used to belong the textile mill. Stamping one of her mother’s designs, I explore the ideas of heritage, history and temporality of their existence. In Kaunas, I was inspired by the design on the wall appeared under the layers of the various old paints. Thus, I created a new pattern by adding my mother’s design to the existed one on the wall.
