"M_M_M_M Project I” is a joint art project of photographer Temuri kHvingia and blacksmiths/metal artists Rait Siska and Risto Tali. A performance and sound artist Erik Alalooga is also involved in the project as a guest artist
"M_M_M_M" Is an art project that binds together the attitudes and relations of the three authors towards modern art and the world in general. The artists wish to cross the borders, shift them, or get rid of all borders. The impulse for this collective creation has come from different art disciplines and techniques from history, which remain relevant even today. We take from the past and pass it on to the future. The exhibited works combine different styles, forms, and techniques of photography and metal art. Different mediums are combined by the authors. The so-called “Punk”-etching includes material (metal sheet) acid etching, bending, and photography process. This technology is taking photo etching to a new level. As far as we know, exactly this technique has not been used in Estonia or anywhere else before. The process was invented by the artists themselves. 8 separate pieces were created with measurements 1100 x 2450 mm (2 pcs), 1100 x 1100mm (6 pcs). The thickness of the aluminum sheet is 2,5mm. The sides of the aluminum sheets are bent under the corner 45' degree. After bending the work looks like a big photo-box and makes it a massive 3D photograph but the weight stays quite small.
The follow-up project “M_M_M_M Project II” completes the 5th independent work of Ø 39cm, it is a sphere. The aluminum sheet has a thickness of 1.5 mm. In the end, the job looks like a 3D photo ball. Each work of art is unique and can't be copied using the same process because every photo etching and development yields different results.
The series “M_M_M_M Project” visuals represent different elements and textures of architecture. The artist is fascinated by the structure, uniqueness, and impact of details in architecture.
