“Hard Drive Of Lost Expressions” is the first outcome of a three-week workshop directed by guest lecturer Marc Hulson (Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London) with participating Masters and Bachelors students from a range of departments at Art Academy of Latvia (Painting; Visual Communication; Movements. Image. Sound; Textile Art; Ceramics; Public Art / Environmental art).
The emphasis of the project has been on collaboration and working across media, pushing the boundaries of personal practice, and the exhibition harnesses the energy of chance encounters and contradictions generated in the process of working together. Rather than a show of individual works, the installation has been considered as an assemblage, with attention to the gaps between elements, considering the play of frictions and tensions as well as the serendipitous alignments.
Exhibitors: Kintija Avena / Viktorija Balašova / Aina Bikše / Kristīne Daukšte / Rute Marta Jansone / Māra Krastiņa / Madara Kvēpa / Beāte Poikāne / Liene Rumpe / Sabīne Šnē / Laura Šterna / Kristīne Upīte / Linda Vilka / Lidija Zaneripa
The exhibition is being staged in two parts, and a second, expanded version of “Hard Drive Of Lost Expressions” will be presented at AAL Gallery "Pilot" in November.
