Merike Estna and Maria Metsalu: Soft Scrub, Hard Body, Liquid Presence

Art in General and the Center for Contemporary Arts (CCAE) Estonia present the exhibition Soft Scrub, Hard Body, Liquid Presence, an International Collaboration featuring artwork and performances by artists Merike Estna and Maria Metsalu, guest curated by Maria Arusoo, Director of CCA Estonia.

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 submitting to the stress of competition and acceleration has provoked a deep mutation in the psychosphere, it explores the zombified body as a response to today’s evolving societal structures.

Looking particularly to the female perspective, the exhibition questions our state of turmoil, loneliness, and uncertainty surrounding the future.

On view 2017-11-17  to 2018-01-13.
