Welcome to the inaugural exhibition of Now: Gallery, in which Kadri Liis Rääk exhibits tufted soft sculptures inspired by the bubbling abundance of life, ceramic forms inspired by symbiotic landscapes and microbes, and chimerically transformed industrial design. In her works, we witness a speculative utopian world built, where various biological life forms meet at the hub of the rhizome, conversing with sensitive ways of being together. Kadri Liis Rääk’s work evolves from an empathetic worldview where touch carries a crucial role in gathering information and relating to one-another. At the exhibition, she exhibits works prepared in Reykjavík, at SIM residency, but also in the residency which preceded the exhibition in Lima. Halcyon is curated by Marika Agu.
One of the founders and gallerist of Now: Gallery, Renzo Pittaluga remarked on the connection between Kadri Liis’ textile and ceramic practice with traditional Peruvian artforms. “What Kadri Liis has absorbed with her research and experiences is very relevant in the local context,” said Pittaluga.
