Iron Men

Contemporary Art Museum of Estonia,
curated by Krist Gruijthuijsen
23 August – 15 October 2023

In Iron Men, I focused on the exploration and analysis on national narratives and representations of power through masculinity. It’s a follow-up to last year’s Still Lifes on National Motifs at the Estonian Museum of Applied Art and Design, which investigated the use of national patterns and motifs in Estonian applied art and printmaking between the 1930s and the 1950s. Iron Men focuses on several elements that were included in that show, in particular the relationship between national iconography and power as well as how it has affected the self-image of Estonians.
