Exhibited at Liste Art Fair Basel and Liste Showtime Online:
'The end that was always near' is an installation of Estonian artist Merike Estna (b. 1980). The multimedia assemblage presents an image from a post-apocalyptic future, where nature reclaimed from the human conception of technological progress the reign over the planet. Estna’s practice addresses the notion of ecology as a fragile balance: in arts, the natural world and human politics. Her works were exhibited in Moderna Museet, Sweden, Kiasma Art Museum, Finland, her medium-shifting performances were staged at the Baltic Triennial 13 and the Performa 17 in New York.
