Maria Metsalu
Performance Artist

Maria Metsalu (1990) is an Estonian performer and artist, who finished SNDO (School for New Dance Development) in Amsterdam in 2016. Her former practice as a solo artist has mutated into a form of collective practice, often facilitating other artist in her work, directly or implied and synthesizing it with her own work. She has an ongoing interest in the production of her own persona, self-mythologization of it and her own autopoiesis.

Exploring physical and virtual realities, bringing them together, understanding the differences of those two in terms of interaction, social exchange and transformation are important aspects of her research process. She aims to articulate relations between visual culture, identity, appropriation, telepresence and voyeurism using self referential relationships with corporate technologies. She is creating visual performative works that regardless of the chosen medium places her own body in the epicenter. Besides her solo work she is one of the founding members of international performance collective Young boy dancing group.

    Public housing has recently been portrayed as a carrier of good neighbourhood that is vanishing in our society and the public has romanticised its image. However, the public has neglected the many real problems faced by people living in these flats: low income, jobless, disability, family problems, new migrants, ageing population and so on. Meanwhile, meaningless renovations have been carried out in old public housing estates but no improvements have been made on facilities that that are really in need. (more…)
