Kristi Kongi

Kristi Kongi (born in 1985, in Tallinn) 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. Her works are characterized by bright tones, often in spectral colours. For Kongi, 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.
