ATTA Gallery introduces Nils Hint from Estonia through I-Land mini exhibition. 

 

Gatherer is a king. Every time I go to my studio I pass the small junkyard where they are buying up Iron and other metals. Often I step inside and have a look, the guys who work there know me already and I have special agreement if I want to buy something from them. But some times I just go there and look around. Although its junk, I find it valuable for me as a cut-through of our material culture today. The things we throw away also talk about what do we keep and what is important for us. I have been gathering most of my materials from this place, from the piles of useless things laying around.

 

 

***Nils Hint is a blacksmith and applied artist living and working in Estonia. His work ranges from contemporary jewellery to installation and sculpture. He sees iron in all its wonders. In his hands iron leaves its super practical world and experiences the forms outside the boundaries given to it.
