1. WHERE ARE YOU FLYING? - RIGHT BACK ON THE WALL!   2016     

 Aili Vint: To empower the unpredictable nature of the Sea that draws us to it, I let some tiny abstract paintings loose in the Tartu Art House. Like little butterflies they were fluttering around the seascapes, spreading gossip about the moods and whims of the Sea. Just like people floating around in their moods, just like on the waves of the Sea!

2. PILDI SISSE MINEK (TAIMING OF A PAINTING WITH AILI VINT) 1985

Aili Vint talks about the process of creating her paintings. English subtitles

 
"You become responsible, forever, for what you have tamed"  wrote A.Saint-Exupéri (Little Prince)
Aili Vint:  Have you tried to put the baby to bed, when he does not want to sleep?  - In order to get the Quiet Sea to lie down on the canvas, you have to wrestle it for a long time. But one fine day I feel that now is the right time and then painting succeeds again with surprising ease – as if someone else was working inside me and making incredible things happen, as if The Sea itself was painting My Sea.
