    Martiini has created a series of warnings and instructions for public spaces named “Closed?” with a design familiar to Tartu residents, but with distorted content. You can choose between 10 different messages. The sign at the front of the gallery is one of the messages printed on a sticker on an aluminium composite plate. Tenders can also be made for print files so that you can format them up to 50 x 100 cm.
