Intro
For Kadri, a jewel is perfectly sufficient as a jewel and she does not strive to be outside its intimacy, its value or its closeness. Everything, which could be called a tradition, allows her to skilfully manage uncontrollable power, desperate passion and the will to life with all its acceptances and refusals, subjections and sovereignties.

Artist list

Kadri Mälk
Testament is the name of Kadri Mälk´s exhibition and the title of her book. Her summary and insight into her art and her life, which she has - one next to the ohter, one as the assumption for the other or indeed one despite the other - been refining with passion and persistence. Moderation and permissibility in the extreme, covering a period of intensive creativity with an awe-inspiring number of works. 
Both the artist and her creations are more alive and resilient than ever before; engaging in clear, all-cards-on-the-table manoeuvres with the freedom and pleasure of one who is no longer constrained by time
. / Tamara Luuk
 
... big, unruly hair, aquiline nose, dark, wild eyes, many layers of clothing with subtle shades and hidden patterns, one piece of jewellery on your chest, another on your hat, shoes with pointed tips - all of it black, naturally, or even darker than black. A witch, a shaman of the north country. ... You have instilled in me the belief that art can contain truth. A knowledge distilled from a large patern. …We don’t make trinkets you once said. That remains my way of measuring all other art. It’s an unforgiving yardstick. Tanel Veenre
