Exhibition "Fairy Tale-Grandma Tales"

Vestervalli Street 21, Narva City, Republic of Estonia
September 24th, 2015 - December 6th, 2018

The exhibition is a cozy grandmother's room where one can meet and experience a fairy tale in different forms.


This is a cozy grandmother's room where you can meet a fairy tale in different forms - listen, read, play, watch, write and tell yourself. The seemingly ordinary wardrobe can start talking and hide in the fairy tale forest, but the characters on the book pages suddenly wake up and move. Baked pancakes are also missing from the grandmother - this is a sensual pancake with which you can put one new romantic novel into play.

The exhibition was born thanks to the textile flags that came to the museum, the author of which was a fairy tale called Leelo Vau (1921-2010), who traveled around Estonia along with them in the 1980s, and in fairy tales for both children and adults. The fact that when he lived in Tallinn on Niidi Street, he was interested in complicated and time-consuming technique - needle painting - thread painting. Leel Vau's Needles, among other things, masterful portraits, are found in collections of several Estonian museums. The exhibition shows a couple of original and a selection of works in photos.

Most of us have childbirth moments with their grandmother. Older people have had time to share with the child, go around and tell stories to go there. These stories often accompany a person for the rest of his life - so important is what is being experienced as a child.

This exhibition is dedicated to all grandparents who love children to talk stories and try to recall that during this fast and superficial time it is crucial to find time for eye meetings to listen to each other and tell stories.

The exhibition was compiled by: Tuuli Silber 
Designed by: Anneliis Aunapuu and Tuuli Silber. 
Screenings: Risto Järv, Estonian Folklore Archives of the Estonian Literary Museum, Piret Päär 
Animation: Animailm OÜ

Cultural Endowment of Estonia was supported.
