ARTISTS IN RESIDENCY at Püha Vaimu SAAL in SEPTEMBER 2015: MARIA METSALU



During the residency, Maria will be working on a new solo " Fuchsia", where the focus is set on the production of persona, reconfiguration and (self) voyeurism through the virtual filter and social media. In " Fuchsia" the body seems to disintegrate when mirrored through the beholder's gaze, oscillating between states of pleasure, indifference and suffering. It presents the desire to take
charge in the design of one's subjectivity and body image in relation to fashion, post internet design and visual culture. Artist explores the fabrication of the body as a character and as a
brand and the loneliness which this self-exposure has led to.

 

Maria Metsalu is an Estonian choreographer and performer, currently based in Amsterdam and
studying at SNDO. She creates mainly solo works with an interest in the production of her own persona, self-mythologisation and autopoiesis. Exploring physical and virtual realities, social exchange and transformation are important aspects of her research. She forms her identity
through fabricated female characters, exposing them in virtual and social media with an aim to bring those characters to life in a physical performance. During recent years her interest has shifted from stage work towards visual art and video.
