Exhibition by Kärt Hammer will open in Tütar gallery

On Thursday, February 29th, Kärt Hammer will open her solo show, titled “Dirty White,” at Tütar gallery. Her exhibition project delves into the intimate interplay between the divine and the secular within earthly realms. Hammer examines humanity’s yearning for morality and purity, embodying her thoughts with expressive impact through the concept of “Dirty White.” Her artworks lead the viewer on a poetic journey of contemplation, moving away from over-explanation and rigid definitions of art, towards semi-divine concepts, shedding the weight of excessive explication and definition.

Kärt Hammer (1988) is an interdisciplinary artist living and working in Tallinn. During her studies in Tallinn University (Philosophy BA, Theory of Culture MA) her focus shifted towards existentialism and interpretation difficulties in art. The main focus in her work is pure aesthetics and free intuition through abstraction, while avoiding excessive textuality. Playing with void and noise through simple lines and forms, searching silence in chaos. Although Hammer is mostly expressing herself in abstract painting, she somehow analytically is connecting the overwhelming abstraction with installation and fashion. Working also as a stylist and costume designer, she gives clothes another perspective. Communicating with form, sculpting the material into a new meaning, directing the scene with colour and movement – or the absence of colour – and creating a world of her own.

Kärt Hammer’s exhibition will remain open at the Tütar gallery until April 7th and is free to the public. The gallery is located in the Noblessner Port at Vesilennuki 24 and is open Thursday to Friday 1pm to 7pm and Saturday to Sunday from 2pm to 6pm.
