Filter Feeders, Double Binds & Other Blooms
Kristina Õllek


Texts by Angeliki Tzortzakaki, Jeff Diamanti, Kristina Õllek


Exploring Kristina Õllek’s marine and coastal ecological interest, the publication Filter Feeders, Double Binds & Other Blooms invites us to think with her four year long working process, based on research and personal observations around anthropocentric influences on marine ecology. Focusing on the North Sea and its filter feeders: blue mussels, oysters and the expanding jellyfish population; as well as on the Baltic Sea and its cyanobacteria, blue green algal blooms and dead zones.

The publication includes a letter correspondence between Kristina Õllek and curator Angeliki Tzortzakaki, as well a collaborative visual essay by Kristina Õllek, Angeliki Tzortzakaki and Kert Viiart, and an essay by theorist Jeff Diamanti. The publication includes a wide range of exhibition views from her three recent solo exhibitions at Draakon Gallery (Tallinn), A Tale of A Tub (Rotterdam) and ISSP gallery (Riga).
