INTERVIEW WITH ANDRES EHIN
Truth is that our newspaper Epifanio is getting on nicely. There has been response and offers of cooperation from Estonia, England, America, the Netherlands and Italy.
The third issue does not focus on one main theme, but is quite eclectic in the good sense of the word (the entire globe is eclectic, after all). At the same time the necessary simplicity is not lacking either. “Simplicity is always the secret, to a profound truth, to doing things, to writing, to painting. Life is profound in its simplicity,” said Charles Bukowski.
Curator and writer Harry Pye describes the exhibition that he compiled and named after the Jim Jarmusch film, “Night on Earth”, in the former Victorian schoolhouse in East-London. Architect and artist Marco Casagrande gives an overview of the Future Pavilion, curated by himself, in Kaoshioung in South-Taiwan, in a former laundry of the horsemen and their horses of the Japanese army. Art and architecture historian Udo Kultermann writes about Robert Colescott, a black American painter who skilfully relies on the work of such classics as Picasso, Matisse, van Gogh and others. Architect Vilen Künnapu interprets one aspect of his work in recent years, namely spiritual temple architecture. Film director Andri Luup describes films made from heart and the essence of films in general. Architect Toivo Tammik writes about Russia on the basis of his last summer Astrakhan trip, and about the mad German Hannsjörg Voth, who has, among other things, set up a sculptural town in the middle of the Moroccan desert (the author wittily compares him with the Estonian Allan Murdmaa, architect of our Maarjamäe memorial). Architect Christian Edlinger writes about picking pebbles on various beaches, artist Elizabeth Haarala about a walk along the Embankment in London. The interview is with writer Andres Ehin, who reveals the essence of poetry. He also presents some poems.
Some readers have wondered why Epifanio never has any criticism. To amend this shortcoming, maestro Nato Lumi criticises the weather of the current spring. In the new column “My Herbarium”, friend of nature Leena Torim praises the progressive plant – fireweed.
The timeless paper Epifanio tries to convey diverse worlds. World – it is an association of possible realities.
