Is There Any Light And Colour Left?

During lockdown, Kristi Kongi spent a lot of time in her studio in a relatively safe space compared to other people around the world. Almost unconsciously she started to look up at the sky through her studio windows. There she found the space we all share regardless of our geographical location and political, economic or social situation. Kongi started to paint watercolours, which can be seen as diary entries made during the pandemic. These works are like modern versions of Très Riches Heures, the famous 15th century book of hours, piece by piece revealing the troubled world we now inhabit.
