Anu Vahtra

Anu Vahtra (b. 1982) lives and works in Tallinn. Vahtra’s artistic practice often relates to the spatial context or architectural setting that she exhibits in; through subtle changes she reveals otherwise overlooked aspects of spaces in such a manner that they eventually underline their initial purposes. Vahtra studied photography at Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam and is in residence at the International Studio & Curatorial Program in October and November 2017, specifically focusing on Gordon Matta-Clark’s archives. In 2010, Vahtra and graphic designer Indrek Sirkel founded Lugemik, a bookstore and publishing initiative in Tallinn that publishes small editions of art books and other printed matter.
