Merike Estna, Maria Metsalu: Soft Scrub, Hard Body, Liquid Presence
Nov 18-Jan 13
Soft Scrub, Hard Body, Liquid Presence observes a shift taking place in the realm of our aesthetic and emotional sensibilities. The exhibition wonders if our over-consumption of virtual space and submission to the stress of competition and acceleration has provoked a deep mutation in the psychosphere, exploring the zombified body as a response to today's evolving societal structures. Artists: Merike Estna, Maria Metsalu. Curator: Maria Arusoo.
