Kristi Paap has exhibited at many places in the world as part of the artist group FFFF and as an individual artist. At Hnoss we will show her latest works « Blades of grass is only a moment » and « A room with a view ».
Blades of grass is only a moment is inspired by fantasies and recollections from the artists childhood cherry orchard. The memories of flower buds and roots is manifested in jewellery made of plexi glass and wood. The impermanence in the living is opposed, transformed and immortalised into new materials and shapes.
In the series A room with a view Kristi Paap is investigating what you in general terms might call the sound of nature, such as the drone of insects, leaves rustling in the wind and waves lapping against the shore. The jewellery in this series is a part of natures low-key sound or loud silence, and makes a quiet noise when put into motion.
