MALLE LEISI NITUS „KOLLANE SUVI”
27.11.2014–1.03.2015


Nitus avatakse neljapeval, 27. novembril kell 17.00 Tartu Kunstimuuseumis.

Tartu Kunstimuuseumi selle aasta suursndmuseks on Malle Leisi levaatenitus „Kollane suvi”. Malle Leis, eesti kunsti grand old lady, tuli siinsele kunstimaastikule 1960. aastatel. Leis tles lahti meie varasemale kunstile omasest illusoorse hu ja valguse abil loodud pildiruumist ning ehitas popkunstile iseloomulike puhaste lokaaltoonidega oma tasapinnalise maaliruumi.

Leis alustas kunstipinguid 1958. aastal Tartu Kunstikoolis ja lpetas 1968. aastal ENSV Riikliku Kunstiinstituudi lavakujunduse erialal. Tnis Vindi poolt ellu kutsutud loomingulise henduse ANK ’64 liikmena kuulus ta kunstnike plvkonda, keda iseloomustas idealistlik ja otsinguline vaim. Leisi 1960. aastate tdes neb ajastule iseloomulikku abstraktsionismi ja kollaai kasutust, kuid neis on juba ka ra tuntavaid reaalelu objekte – lilli, sipelgaid, liblikaid, vikerkaari.

1970. aastate hakul tulevad Leisi maalidesse „Noored inimesed”, „Tdrukud”, „Mehed”, „Mees mere res” impersonaalsed inimesed. Neis Leisi tardunud oleku ja suletud ilmega tegelastes on hilisemad kunstiksitlejad tajunud ajastuomast eksistentsialistlikku ngi. Samasse aega kuulub aga ka ks Leisi populaarsemaid maale „Punased hobused”, mis siiani toidab mti Leisist kui igavesest lillelapsest.

Nimetud noored inimesed Leisi maalidel said peatselt endale nime, olles esialgu kll lihtsalt Leili, Milvi vi Ele. 1978. aastal valmis aga esimene konkreetse mratlusega t „Nitlejanna Kersti Kreismanni portree”, millele jrgnes ridamisi teistegi eesti kunstnike ja kultuuritegelaste portreesid: Irja Kndler, Mari Saat, Boris Bernstein, Evi Pihlak, Raul Meel jt.

Kunstniku firmamrgiks kujunesid aga nende tavalisest kontekstist vlja tstetud suured vrvikirevad lilleied. Lilled-taimed on Leisi loomingus kogu aeg olemas olnud, olgu need siis maalidel, akvarellis vi serigraafiates, nad elavad tema piltidel vitaalset elu, kohati suisa vitaalsemat kui inimesed.

Nitusega kaasneb rikkalikult illustreeritud raamat Malle Leisi tdega, mida saadavad artiklid Katrin Kivimaalt ja Bojana Pejićilt, Tiiu Talvistu kiriintervjuu autoriga, Villu Jgeva sissevaade tema siiditrkkide snnilukku jm. Koostanud Tiiu Talvistu, tlge inglise keelde Kersti Unt, toimetanud Richard Adang ja Kristi Metste, kujundanud Tiit Jrna.

Nitusega kaasnevad Eesti popkunsti tutvustavad haridusprogrammid vanematele kooliastmetele ja lillelise kunstiteose loomise ttoad noorematele. Lisainfo www.tartmus.ee vi kristel@tartmus.ee.

PRESS RELEASE
Tartu Art Museum
24.11.2014

Exhibition of the works of Malle Leis “YELLOW SUMMER”
27.11.2014–1.03.2015

The exhibition opens on Thursday, 27th of November at 5 p.m at Tartu Art Museum.

“Yellow Summer”, the exhibition of the works of Malle Leis, is the greatest event of this year at Tartu Art Museum. Malle Leis, the grand old lady of Estonian art, appeared on the Estonian art landscape in the 1960s. Leis renounced the pictorial space of illusory air and light characteristic of the earlier Estonian art and built a personal art space using clear local tones and flat surfaces characteristic of pop art.

Leis started her art studies in 1958 at the Art School of Tartu and graduated in 1968 from the Estonian (State) Art Institute as a scenery artist. As a member of the creative association ANK ’64 organized upon the initiative of Tnis Vint Leis belonged to the generation of artists characterized by an idealistic and searching spirit. The works of Leis from the 1960s use abstractionism and collage, both very characteristic of the period; there are also recognizable objects from real life – flowers, ants, butterflies, and rainbows.

At the beginning of the 1970s people appeared in the paintings of Leis. In these characters of frozen attitude and closed appearance later critics have found existential anxiety characteristic of the time. However, one of the most popular paintings of Malle Leis “Red Horses” still feeding the myth of Leis as an eternal flower child has also been painted at the time.

In 1978 “Portrait of Actress Kersti Kreismann” was painted, followed by portraits of other known artists and cultural figures: Irja Kndler, Mari Saat, Boris Bernstein, Evi Pihlak, Raul Meel, and others.

But it was big colourful flowers taken out of their context that became the brand of the artist. Flowers and plants have always been present in the work of Malle Leis in oil paintings, watercolours, or silkscreen paintings; they lead their own very vital life, in places even more vital than people.

The exhibition is accompanied by a book illustrated richly with the works of Malle Leis and containing articles by Katrin Kivimaa and Bojana Pejić, a letter interview with Malle Leis from Tiiu Talvistu, and excerpts from Villu Jgeva's the Story of Silkscreen printing, etc. The book has been compiled by Tiiu Talvistu, translated into English by Kersti Unt, edited by Richard Adang and Kristi Metste and designed by Tiit Jrna.

The educational programme of the exhibition introduces Estonian pop art to the older schoolchildren and offers workshops of creating flowery pictures for younger schoolchildren. More information www.tartmus.ee or kristel@tartmus.ee.

The works presented at the exhibition come from the art museums of Estonia, Tartu, and Viinistu, from Narva Museum; from private collections and Malle Leis. The exhibition has been designed by Tiit Jrna. We are grateful to the Estonian Cultural Endowment for support.
