“Krigale-kurr”, an exhibition by Katri Smitt, Lecturer at the UT Viljandi Culture Academy, is open on the two floors of the gallery in the UT Centre for Arts in February and March.
The exhibition displays abstract works in watercolour and ink that are like miniature worlds, in which the random is intertwined with the deliberate, colour with line, high speed with very slow.
“I like to think that creating is a game that should be taken lightly and, at the same time, very seriously. This is the beauty of the game. When you put it all into play, it may incidentally happen that we find wings for ourselves,” the artist says. “Krigale-kurr is my game; I have played it self-forgetfully for many years.”
Katri Smitt (born 1972) has graduated from Tallinn University of Art in graphic arts. In 2012, she graduated with master’s degree in art education from the Estonian Academy of Arts. From the same year, she has worked as the lecturer of general composition and drawing at the UT Viljandi Culture Academy. In addition to graphic design, photography and media, Katri specialises in children’s literature.
All visitors can also support the Anu Raud scholarship for students by making a 5-euro donation to the scholarship fund – and get a “Krigale-kurr” chest badge in return.
