On Thursday, November 30, at 6:00 p.m., the Latvian textile artist Zane Shumeiko's personal exhibition, "Thread of Memories," opened at the art gallery Kunstiruum in the T1 center. The exhibition will remain open until January 21, 2024. Admission is free.

Zane Shumeiko, who has lived and worked in Estonia for almost 10 years, graduated from the textile art department of the Latvian Academy of Arts. She also studied and worked in Italy. In 2022, she obtained a master's degree in the design department of the Estonian Academy of Arts, specializing in experimental free-motion embroidery. She interprets and experiments with this technique, constantly seeking new forms and ways of expression.


Shumeiko has participated in art residencies, projects, and exhibitions in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Bulgaria, England, Finland, Italy, and elsewhere. Since 2023, she has been a member of the Latvian Textile Art Association, as well as a member of the Estonian Textile Artists Association (ETAA) and the European Textile Network (ETN).

 During her time in Italy, a three-month internship at the Prada fashion house left a lasting impression on her. Later, she worked at the historic Ratti textile company in Como, focusing on colors, fabric design, silk threads, and more. In her spare time, she draws and paints Italian landscapes, collecting various impressions of the cultural environment, language, and people she meets.

  Kuntiruum is a sales gallery located on the second floor of the T1 center. In addition to the permanent exhibition, the gallery hosts personal exhibitions. It showcases more than 300 works by nearly 50 Baltic artists, including Estonian artists such as Heiki Ernits, Laurentsius, Toomas Kuusing, Vilen Künnapu, Arne Maasik, Jüri Mildeberg, Naima Neidre, Vive Tolli, Marju Üksine, Santa Zukker, and many others.
