At the opening ceremony of the Contemporary Art Triennial for School Students Eksperimenta!, the international triennial jury announced the winners of three categories and gave an additional special mention to one talented young artist.

According to Sirje Helme, the head judge of Eksperimenta!, the four-member jury assayed the aspects of artworks that are characteristic to the age group of Eksperimenta! participants, aged 14-19. “The authors of Eksperimenta! are a very special age group, who are on the border of childhood and growing up. It is a very complicated age where young people have to deal with themselves and the “teenage angst” characteristic to that age. The maturity reflected in the works of the triennial participants is amazing and some of the participants are certainly bound to be notable artists in the future,” said Sirje Helme. Read more
