Krista Mölder (b.1972) is an artist based in Tallinn. She is a graduate of the Estonian Academy of Arts Photography MA programme (2006), and holds a Photography Studies MA from University of Westminster, London (2004). Mölder is a Photography lecturer at the Academy of Arts in Tallinn since 2003.
According to the artist, her interest in the relationship between person and space is an important part of her work. Mölder's melancholic photo series often highlight a distinctive absence of a subject, while presupposing an active viewer position. Mölder’s exhibitions are increasingly site-specific, taking her interest in spatial context beyond the content of the photographs themselves.
Mölder’s recent exhibitions include: "… and Other Shades of Light", with Kristi Kongi, curated by Siim Preiman, Tallinn Art Hall (2021-2022); "You Were a Bird", Temnikova & Kasela, Tallinn (2020); "Getting Lost", Kanzan Gallery, Tokyo (2017); “Between the Archive and Architecture”, with Neeme Külm and Taavi Talve, curated by Kati Ilves, KUMU Art Museum, Tallinn (2016–2017); "Köler Prize 2016.
