    Biography

    Eike Eplik (1982) is a sculptor and installation artist. She uses nature motifs for constructing a narrative, utilises the gallery space from floor to ceiling, works with sculpting techniques from classic plaster casting to paper and wood assemblage and found objects. The processes in her art are partly subconscious and not always fully explainable. When preparing exhibitions Eplik relies on improvisation – to the extent material allows, of course.

    Eike Eplik graduated from the Sculpture Department of Tartu Art College (BA, 2007). During her studies, she took on internships with artists in Germany and Finland. She continued her studies at the Sculpture department in the Estonian Academy of Arts (MA, 2010). Eplik works as a teacher in Tartu Children’s Art School and also Tartu Art College. In 2006 she was awarded the Eduard Wiiralt Stipend and in 2012 the young artist production stipend KUKU NUNNU of the contemporary art festival ART IST KUKU NU UT. In 2015 she was nominated for the Sadolin Art Prize and in 2018 Eplik was awarded the Addo Vabbe Stipend.

    Eike Eplik has made this metaphoric installation of various wires, epoxy resin, haberdashery and knick-knacks. During the exhibition, a spider settled in the nest, which is exceptionally suitable considering Eike’s oeuvre. Our previous show of Kogo Gallery was Eike Eplik’s personal exhibition “Biomass – Ghost in the Corner“. The catalogue of this exhibition, together with Mehis Heinsaar’s symbolic manifesto “Aesthistence” will be published within the upcoming weeks.
