Meri Linna works predominantly as part of the collaborative duo Harrie Liveart, but she also makes works on her own. Her personal work comes out of much slower paced practice somewhat different to Harrie Liveart but no less important. With Harrie Liveart there is a certain ease to the way the work emerges from two minds that encourage, argue and push each other. Whereas, in Linna’s own art, you can feel a dedication to self-examination and enlightenment through practice. It is slow and introspective. It develops through a certain kind of self-examination that cannot come quickly. Introspection in art is often equated with self-indulgence but you cannot apply this term to Linna’s work. Her desire to constantly involve others, which is also seen with her collaborative practice, drives the work into personal experiences for the viewer themselves. She uses her own long process of self-examination as a mirror for us to look at ourselves.
