Per William Petersen

Head and Tail

Starting on Tuesday, 4 June at 18:00, a new sculpture exhibition will open at the Haus Gallery – Per William Petersen’s Head and Tail – in which both bronze and wooden carved cheerful characters embody existential ideas. Kristina Miskowiak Beckvard, the Danish Ambassador to Estonia, will also be taking part in the opening of the exhibition by an artist who is from Denmark and lives in Estonia.

Life is flashing by – like the images we see from the window of a moving train. Some images will be lost forever. Others we grab onto and remember forever, until they are engraved in our memory. Head and Tail is an exhibition that is trying to catch some of these fleeting ‘images’ of life, to capture the stories before they fade forever.

To remember the faces of people with whom our paths in life have crossed and met again. To find the head and the tail that we have obtained from the experiences in this journey that is life. Heads and Tails was created at a time when time itself let it be born. Things happened right after life was put on hold. After the pause was over, life continued more fiercely than ever before and the exhibition in hand was born, with all the works having been created especially for this exhibition, none of which have ever been displayed before.

Per William Petersen moved from Denmark to Tartu 13 years ago and continued his life in Estonia as a freelance artist. He has always worked as a creator – a silversmith and a graphic designer – and previously studied at the Danish Design School, in Copenhagen. Per is constantly active in expressing the world in different ways. This means he has had to create new techniques and search for new materials to use in his works. Nothing in his workflow is static – one door opens the next one!

Per’s themes often evolve around relationships between people. Human beings are like a secret. Curiosity and wonder, to find the head and the tail to all of what is happening in the world, both globally and locally. This is Per’s joy and passion. One of his strengths is his sense of humour. Mixing humour with the truth makes it a very powerful tool.

‘Art is not a spectator sport. Spectators are invited when the game is over’, says Per. You are invited to the exhibition, to see the result of the game! The exhibition will remain open at Haus Gallery until 29 June 2019.
