‘Little Man’ by Johanna Mudist
Estonian artist Johanna Mudist spent three weeks in the town of Kintai gathering her experiences for the journey of the LITTLE MAN. On the 24th of May, 7pm we at Kintai Arts Artist Residence have been inviting everyone to the presentation of creative works by our first resident this year who is also taking part in the first steps of Residence’s development and reflection.
The title LITTLE MAN is a reference to the size of the presented little drawings (where tiny tiny humans are depicted). It can also be understood as a hint to social pyramids and structures of hierarchy (being big or being small physically/mentally). With her drawings, the viewer has the position of ‘god’ watching from space those tiny humans like ants living their ordinary, but funny lives.
Johanna Mudist (1991) is a young Estonian visual artist. She finished her Master’s studies in Estonian Academy of Arts. She also has been gathering experiences during the exchange studies in Finland Imatra Arts University and in Jan Matejko Academy of Fine Arts in Cracow, Poland. Johanna had a few solo exhibitions as well as several group exhibitions in Estonia, Finland, Lithuania, and Poland. It is her second time in an art residency in Lithuania.
Johanna’s residency is part of a residency exchange programme with Tartu Artist in Residence.
