This “blanket-painting” uses kitschy fabrics. Kris Lemsalu usually bought them at the now defunct Baltic Station market in Tallinn. She used an idea that was derived from her work "Aldonza Lorenzo", which she completed in 2014. In that case, pairs of sheer pantyhose hung on forms taken from a jawbone that a friend had given her, and thus, Kris’s first “painting” was born. A jawbone-vagina in leopard-skin pants doing a split has planted itself on the head of bear innocently taking a break in the forest.
