Maria Arusoo

(b. 1983) is a curator and artist based in Tallinn. Arusoo is interested in new conceptual ideas produced by a different relationship between spectator and artwork. In particular, her works make references to the architectonic context and re-route spatial perceptions. As a curator Arusoo has made exhibitions and projects illuminating the relationship between art and power, concentrating on exploitation in art, through art, and around art. As an artist, Maria Arusoo works in the field of performance, film and installation where she explores the borders between physicality and perceptions. Since May 2012, she works as curator and executive manager at the Centre for Contemporary Arts, Estonia.
