I haven’t moved my head from the pillow
Kristi Kongi is an Estonian painter who focuses on colour, light and space in her works: paintings that take the form of installations and are created for specific settings.
KK’s works are characterised by bright tones, often in spectral colours. By using such materials as Plexiglas, wood and plastic film in her painting installations and integrating video, laser or audio into the environment, KK gives her works a dynamic and ever-changing quality. For KK, painting is a way of documenting different spaces and objects of personal importance and thereby capturing time. Her works, often reconstructions of specific places, are closely engaged with the mechanisms of emotional memory, offering an opportunity for experiencing the colour and light of bygone situations.
Kristi Kongi’s first monograph shows a selection of her projects from the last five years. The book includes 424 full-colour reproductions. Texts are written by Kati Ilves. Languages: English, Estonian
