LHV au-tasu 2019

Reedel anti Eesti Muusika Päevade raames Estonia kontserdisaalis ERSO kontserdil “Helide Mets” üle Eesti Heliloojate Liidu ja LHV poolt välja antav uue heliloomingu Au-tasu, mille tänavuseks laureaadiks valis žürii Helena Tulve teose “Tundmatuis vetes” eest.

Žürii liikme Kerri Kota sõnul on Tulve teos helirännak meie kõigi päriskoju. “Kui esmapilgul näib see teekond olevat kellekski või millekski saamise või aina parema kohandumise tee – sellele viitab soolotšello, mis eriti teose alguses taotleb orkestriga aktiivselt sümbiootilist suhet –, siis mingil hetkel saabub tõdemus, et maailm on olemas vaid selleks, et pakkuda uksi, millest sisenedes võib taas leida iseenda,” kirjeldas Kotta võiduteost.

Konkursi eesmärk on väärtustada uut Eesti heliloomingut ja aktiivseid heliloojaid. Esitada saab vaid kandideerimisele eelneval aastal (2018) maailma esiettekandele tulnud teoseid, mille autor on Eesti helilooja. Auhind on 5000-eurone stipendium ja klaasikunstnik Mare Saare taies, millele lisandub teose tellimus festivalilt Eesti Muusika Päevad vastavalt kokkuleppele laureaadiga.

Umwelt is defined as the world as it is experienced by a particular organism, based on the differentiations made by that organism. Each different species has a different Umwelt, which depends on the different discriminative ability of the species, as well as its various individual experiences.

The concept of Umwelt was introduced into the German language by Jakob von Uexküll. In German the word also means environment, so a distinction is made when speaking about Umwelt: indicating that one is dealing with a subjective environment or alluding to Uexküll.

At the exhibition called Umwelt, which marks the 80th anniversary of professional Estonian glass art, black-and-white photos of a selection of the graduation projects created by the students of glass art at the Estonian Academy of Arts / State Art Institute of the Estonian S.S.R. / Tallinn Art University are on display. Since our goal is to examine the influences and changes affecting the individual’s journey from the classroom to life as an artist, new, and often only recently created works are also on exhibit.

The question we are asking is whether the works from the past have preserved their value and significance in the artists’ lives, or if a total change has occurred and a connection no longer exists between the artists’ current work and the projects they created as students.

 Mare Saare: Defining Chaos I; Defining Fragility.

Glass as a design material, a means of expression for artists, and our everyday companion in all kinds of environments and technical solutions is almost indispensable. Glass does occur in nature, and glass produced by humans has been known since the third millennium B.C. The methods for working glass, as one of the oldest artificial materials – blowing, fusing, engraving and polishing – are generally the same in the 21st century as they were several millennia ago. However, new industrial and computer-aided processes are now being added. The mystery that always surrounded the production of glass has not disappeared. With this exhibition, we hope to bring viewers closer to glass art, make it more understandable and unveil new interesting discoveries.
