About the artist
Kati Saarits (born in 1992) is an Estonian artist who has acquired a bachelor’s degree in the Department of Installation and Sculpture at the Estonian Academy of Arts and done exchange studies at the Art and Design Department of the University of Ljubljana. Her work is characterized by sensitive material handling and an intuitive approach to sculptural forms. She is fascinated by the disciplinary boundary between the practices of sculpture and installation, and by the idea of the self-sufficiency of the three-dimensional object. In her recent art practices, Saarits is largely engaged in the fields of applied arts and crafts, intertwining the technical and material focus of applied art and traditional working methods in her own artistic creations.
