Part of the EU Month of Culture, Hillyer has partnered with the Embassy of Estonia to present LIGHT MATTER, an exhibition and performance by artist Jaanika Peerna. Peerna will create a room-size drawing installation which will consist of works in varying scale and presence. There will be tiny and large framed drawings as well as sculptural forms made from reflective mylar as well as graphite drawings on mylar.
Jaanika Peerna is an Estonian-born artist living and working primarily in New York since 1998 as well as in Berlin and Tallinn. Her work encompasses drawing, video, installation and performance, often dealing with the theme of transitions in light, air, water and other natural phenomena. She is often involved in collaborative projects working with designers, dancers and musicians. She has exhibited her work extensively in the entire New York metropolitan area as well as in Berlin, Paris, Tallinn, Helsinki, Venice, Rome, Dubai, Sydney, and Moscow. Her work is in numerous private collections in the US and Europe and was recently acquired by Fonds National d’Art Contemporain, Paris. Her work is represented in the United States by ARC Fine Art in Connecticut, M Contemporary in Sydney, and Galerie Ulf Larsson in Cologne.
