Series: VARIATIO DELECTAT!
Aili Vint: Miks hakkasin tegema sensuaalset graafikat? — Vaheldus pakub lõbu.
Vene aja lõpupoole, kes aga välismaale pääses, sai sõpradelt käsu, et toogu pornokaid! Uudishimust vaatasin minagi. - Ei! Seal polnud mehe- ja naisevahelist müstikat ja mis peamine, polnud tuhkagi sellest ürgsest tõmbest mõlema partneri, nii mehe kui naise vahel. Puudus hoomamatu salapära. Mees peaks tunda saama naise maagilist külgetõmbe mõjujõudu pikema aja vältel. — Rain Tolk: „Olulisem on just see, mille naine hoopis avamata jätab.“
Mees ja naine on kui kaks maagilist molekuli. Kui mõlemad on saanud kätte tunde, mis liigutab sügavalt nende meeli, sobivad nad omavahel loomulikult nagu kaks molekuli ühes elurakus.
Aili Vint: My series of colored etchings, „Variety Delights“, is made up of fragments found on a photo of a female nude, with the help of a mirror. The pieces vary in their different forms, sizes and colors - in a natural light shade of human body. The naturally light shade of the human body was chosen for just that effect. In etching technique, the zinc plate reacts with the light zinc printing color and adds a grayish tone to the flesh colour in the more deeply etched places. The result is a two-coloured print made with one colour.
NB! Star compound t.p.l.a. under works means that the prints are done from the artist's own hands to the end.
Open Collections.The Artist Takes the Floor 2019 , Kumu Art Museum:
Estonian Art Museum invites visitors to walk through a forest of art history and sees to it that the walk is a meandering journey, taking museum-goers from main paths to enjoyable side trails which have not yet been fully assessed and categorised in art history.In inviting the artists, the curator considered their creative profiles with the aim of involving different media.
Several invited artists made the initial choice of pieces of interest based on the electronic museum database MuIS and the digital collection of the Art Museum of Estonia, which was followed by actual work with the collection. The works of art on exhibit cover the period from the 17th to the 21st centuries.
The project curated by Maria Arusoo is centred around the theme of the female body in Aili Vint’s prints and the Serbian artist Ivana Bašić’s sculptures. Under the keyword “afterlife of flowers”, the artists Foxy Haze and Jennifer Steinkamp (USA) explore the afterlife of now marginalised art genres in contemporary art projects.
