PUSA “Hall ala”

“The gray area came to me when others were sleeping. It quietly approached and said, “I’m here to stay, there is no way out”.
I picked it up and looked at it for a long time, fear and anxiety replaced by a strange calm. It made me cry and laugh at the same time, my whole body was like a jet plane that took off 3 seconds ago. It’s here to stay, I thought before the others woke up.” Pusa 2023

Pusa (Piret Bergmann (Torim)) was born in 1979 in Noarootsi. She graduated from the Pärnu College of the Estonian Academy of Arts, which was earlier and later known as Academia Non Grata.

Pusa works mainly as a painter and has presented her works in many individual and group exhibitions both in Estonia and elsewhere in the world, including personal exhibitions in Vadstena, Sweden 1997 and Bergkvara Art Hall 2012, La Pigna Gallery in Rome, Italy, Estonian Embassy in Washington, USA 2014, Salisbury and Cumberland.

She is primarily known for her paintings covered with brightly colored patterns, which have an almost psychedelic effect, through which she has a rather unique place in the Estonian art scene. She creates her world mainly in painting, but also in sculpture and installation. She has also written and illustrated several children’s books. Pusa lives and works in Pärnu.

She has been awarded the Pärnu Cultural Artist of the Year award of the Estonian Cultural Foundation in 2008 and 2015 and the Pärnu Art Annual Award in 2011. Pusa is a member of the Estonian Artists’ Union and the Estonian Painters’ Union.

The exhibition will remain open until December 16, 2023.

The exhibition is supported by the Estonian Cultural Foundation and Salistelt OÜ
