Little Creatures by Nina Naveršnik
When I was a little girl, helping my mom in the garden, I imagined there were little people living in hidden parts of the garden. They would only come to life when nobody was watching. This project is a deep dive into my childhood and on the other side, an exploration of who I am as a creative - where does my creative curiosity naturally take me?
The creature on the left is called Pi. Pi is a shy little creature, smaller than most. Dark orange, a bit like the shade of a marigold. Always tilting slightly to one side because one of her legs is a bit shorter. She has always been insecure about it. Even though Pi was made to endure in a harsh and dry land full of sand and few creatures, she has always dreamed of learning to play the bagpipes for her friends. Her dream led her to the northernmost lands, where I met her two weeks ago, on Thursday. She ended up a bit too far in the east, I told her, and directed Pi across the Baltic and the North Sea, towards the Land of the Brave!
