PIND is an international art project, organised by the independent cultural producer Jaanika Okk and the Polish Expats Association. Three artists with the street art background from Tallinn, Estonia, Carl-Robert Kagge, Anton Koovit and Uku Sepsivarthave taken over Centrala Gallery inside and out transforming the gallery itself into a work of art depicting produce and items that are symbolic of Estonian life. The project focuses on site specific art and collaboration. The aim of the project is to create a platform for international relationship between artists from Tallinn and Birmingham, generating discussions and exchanging experiences as well as knowledge for mutual growth. PIND (surface or a space in Estonian) represents the space in Birmingham, which Estonian artists are occupying during two month period.
