Photo reportage from ‘Disposable Gloves Guide’ by Merike Estna at kim?

Merike Estna is one of the most notable representatives from the generation of young Estonian artists, whose work can be largely described as performative. Her art tends to leave the boundaries set by canvas, physically fusing with the space surrounding it, simultaneously challenging the viewer’s former notions of the painting genre and the boundaries of its perception. Disposable Gloves Guide is Merike Estna’s first solo exhibition in Latvia.
