Learn more about the Poetics of Place artists and their work, and how the thematic of the exhibition – our responses to space and place – is reflected in their practices.

Kirke Raava’s practice draws from her Estonian childhood, where memory and personal heritage both inspire and influence her work. She explores and re-imagines themes such as family and identity, combined with sentimental and neglected traditions – and how these relate to both contemporary objects and those of the past.

Following a career in design in the fashion industry, Kirke Raava graduated with BA(Hons) in Jewellery and Accessory Design in 2015 from the Middlesex University. In 2017 she become an elected Arts Fellow at the Digswell Arts Trust.
