Kylli Sparre – Lasting Echos
19 januari 2019 - 2 maart 2019
Kylli Sparre will show a selection of new works from her ongoing series in which she depicts a whimsical world of beautiful loneliness, natural coexistence and solemn peace.
Sparre (1980) lives and works in Tallinn, Estonia. Sparre went through years of training to become a professional ballet dancer. Ballet turned out to be not for her and from early on she kept searching for an outlet for her creativity. When she discovered fine art photography, Kylli never looked back.
Sparre desires to look beneath the surface, hear the unsaid words and study the relationships between people and their surroundings. You can see the influences of ballet in her work: the movements and the carefully observed bodies play a big part in her work. The artist tells you a story where subject and surrounding can become one. It thereby almost transforms into a dance. Although her work can be theatrical, there is always an utter sense of peace emerging from it. Whether the images are surreal, dreamlike or symbolic, they come from her thoughts, observations and experiences.
Sparre’s work is internationally praised and she was rewarded with the Sony World Photography Award 2014.
Opening Saturday January 19, 17:00 – 19:00, The artist will be present
