Merike Estna @ Kunstraum

29 September 2017 - 25 November 2017

Merike Estna’s solo-exhibition, Fragments from the Shattered Toe incorporates an intricately painted stage/floor painting which, over the course of the exhibition, hosts a series of performance events from international dancers, musicians and artist, against a backdrop of Estna’s large-scale curtain painting and other new works.
In her practice Estna seeks for the conceptual integration of painting and daily life, often inscribing the languages, processes and applications of painting onto scenic design and stage-setups. Estna embeds patterns and colour combinations derived from applied arts vocabularies – which haven’t traditionally been accepted in the discourse of painting – juxtaposed with what have become familiar motifs of digital communication. Estna’s work challenges the masculine territory of painting and questions the strict visual separation between painting and craft discourses.
