in fragments from the shattered toe
25 November 2017
For the closing event of her solo exhibition fragments from the shattered toe, Merike Estna has invited Maria Metsalu to perform in and on her installation.
Maria Metsalu is an Estonian performance artist. Her works express an ongoing interest in self-mythologization and autopoiesis via new, corporate technologies in an attempt to understand their terms of social exchange and transformation. Metsalu graduated from School for New Dance Development in 2016, and is one of the founding members of Young Boy Dancing Group. Her work has been shown as a part of Performa 17, in Manifesta 11, Kunsthalle Vienna, Tallinn Art Hall, and the 2016 NU Performance Festival in Tallinn, Estonia.
Merike Estna’s solo-exhibition at Kunstraum incorporates an intricately painted stage/floor painting which, over the course of the exhibition, hosted a series of performance events including Lina Lapelytė (as part of Kunstraum Five Years Party), Performances For Pets (Krõõt Juurak & Alex Bailey) and Charismatic Megafauna.
