… and Other Shades of Light. Kristi Kongi and Krista Mölder

The exhibition … and Other Shades of Light brings together painter Kristi Kongi and photographer Krista Mölder. Colour, its flickering, changeability and influence on our senses play an important role in the work of both artists, yet one of them prefers bright and unearthly tones, whereas the other is fond of modest shades characteristic of northern nature. Both artists proceed from spatial experience, that is, a place or an encounter adaptation which usually results in a work of art. They both can create comprehensive art spaces as well as flat rectangular hanging objects. It is too early to say if their constellation will be pleasantly harmonious or stimulatingly dissonant.

Kristi Kongi focuses on colour, light and space, and her work often takes the form of all-encompassing installations. She has studied painting at Tartu Art College and completed her master’s degree in the painting department of the Estonian Academy of Arts. Since 2017 she is an associate professor in the painting department at the Estonian Academy of Arts. Her recent exhibitions include Shimmering Star Magenta. Was It a Dream or Was It Real? at Kogo Gallery (2021) and Imaginary Creatures at the Twilight 2 at Rüki Gallery in Viljandi (2021). She has recently participated at group exhibitions Colour as an Idea. Thoughts on Colour in ARS Project Room in Tallinn (2021), Let Me Dream Once More at Narva Museum Art Gallery (2020-21) and the international group exhibition Art Museum of Estonia 100. Open Collections: The Artist Takes the Floor.

Krista Mölder explores the relationship between people and environment through allusions and metaphors. She studied photography at Tartu Art College and Westminster University and graduated in 2006 from the Estonian Academy of Arts. Her recent solo exhibitions include Blue Bird. To the Other Me at Tartu Art House (2021), You Were A Bird at Temnikova & Kasela Gallery (2020), Before the Sun Blinded Our Eyes at Hop Gallery (2020) at Hop Gallery and Yes, I Often Came By Here at ARS Showroom Gallery (2019).
