Curated by Tallinn’s CCAE director Maria Arusoo and happening as part of the PERFORMA 17 program, the show reflects on a perceived shift “taking place in the realm of our aesthetic and emotional sensibilities.” The two Estonian artists present textiles, rugs, and clothing; sculpture and video, pondering the “deep mutation in the psychosphere” resulting from an overconsumption of virtual space.
Focussing on the female perspective, Estna and Metsalu — the latter of whom is also a member of Young Boy Dancing Group — attempt to address “this uncanny, post-accelerationist body in its new surroundings, questioning our state of turmoil, loneliness, and uncertainty surrounding the future.”
There will also be a specially-curated mini-bookshop by artist-founded, Tallinn-based publisher Lugemik, running as part of the exhibition during gallery hours and reflecting on the themes of the show.
