A limited edition pair of shorts has been produced in conjunction with Merike Estna’s performance, Red Herring, presented as part of Merike Estna and Maria Metsalu: Soft Scrub, Hard Body, Liquid Presence. The shorts are inspired by Estna’s multidimensional painting works—including textiles and rugs, as well as canvas—that question the diminished value of traditional female labor.
The Burning Star series has a total of 5 different designs of shirts, shorts, and bomber jackets. Each piece is part of a limited edition of 3 plus an artist copy. Shorts can be ordered in any size, from XS-XXL. Purchases are limited to 1 per transaction. When paying by Paypal, please specify in the comments section the size and design that you would like to order.
The Burning Star shorts can be machine washed with cold water and with similar colors. Tumble dry on low heat. Please note that unlike the The Burning Star t-shirt, burning the limited edition shorts is prohibited.
Merike Estna, born in 1980, is an Estonian artist whose work inscribes the vocabularies of painting onto scenery and stage design, inviting visitors to activate her artworks with artist-made drinks, snacks, and napkins. Her recent work questions the gendered separations of painting, craft discourses, and digital communication. She graduated from the Estonian Academy of Arts with a Bachelor’s degree in Painting, and from Goldsmiths College, University of London with a Master’s degree in Fine Art Practice. Her work is featured in current and upcoming exhibitions at London Kunstraum; SIC Gallery in Helsinki, Finland; Karen Huber Gallery in Mexico City; and Kim? Riga. www.genialmythcraft.com
