Sille Kima (1992) is a visual artist and a mover in body, sense and sound, currently based between Athens and Tallinn. Her work is rooted in the haptic of the sonic, and looks at the interplay between setting and dissolution of boundaries within intimate relationships and power structures alike, with a dedication to a planetary tenderness via radical situatedness in the local and the body. She makes and performs music about the grammars of love formed by an exploitative world and also pollinates tomato blossoms, both on her window- sill and in gardens with open gates. One of those is an open garden and a garden residency she is co-running near Narva Art Residency in Narva, Estonia. Her recent artworks have been shown at Lothringer 13 Florida, Palazzo Paradiso, and Reaktorhalle in Munich, at a solo exhibition at Viljandi Old Water Tower (EE), with words and photographic works having been published in Värske Rõhk magazine and in ‘Transobject no 1’ publication, which archives the proceedings of SFB42 – a collective bringing together particle physicists, artists and practitioners she is a part of.
SILLY LOVE SONGS
At a live performance at Frikirjkan, Sille Kima will play songs and sonic tidbits from her upcoming album, meandering themes of love, exploitation, grief and connection on a planet where the primary accepted mode of being is to negate the enmeshedness that we all navigate.
SILLY LOVE SONGS would be another way to put it.
