about.jpg

Kylli Sparre is a visual artist based in Tallinn, Estonia.

In her work, Sparre desires to look beneath the surface, hear the unsaid words and study the relationships between people and their surroundings. Her background in dance is often influencing her images: the movements and the carefully observed bodies play a big part in her work. The artist tells you a story where subject and surrounding can become one. It thereby almost transforms into a dance. Although her work can be theatrical, there is always an utter sense of peace emerging from it. Whether the images are surreal, dreamlike or symbolic, they come from her thoughts, observations and experiences.

Sparre’s work is internationally praised and she was rewarded with the Sony World Photography Award 2014.
