2013 – Missioon

The personal aspect, the clearest centre of Murka’s creation as shown by her innumerable self-portraits, seems to be missing from the installation “Contact”. Still, based on her previous work, the mere politicality of the installation seems to be deceptive. “Contact”, which is based on the artist’s experience in visiting a mission in Afghanistan – where she was a civilian, and an individual also in the sense of not belonging to a hierarchical collective environment – is not a symbol of only differences between NATO member countries but also of the artist’s personal rebellion against militaristic discipline she suddenly came into contact with.
