Paintings and Sculptures

7 – 30 May

National Library of Latvia

The exhibition features works from artists of three different generations - Eduards Gaiķis, Jānis Valters Ezeriņš and Līga Spunde. Their experiments with photography reveal the quest for the boundaries of the medium. Each of them challenges the physicality of photography in their own way, equating its qualities to painting and sculpture. Eduards Gaiķis (1881-1961) will be represented with autochrome photographs made in the beginning of the 20th century – examples of early colour photography. From the works of Jānis Valters Ezeriņš (1938) the crystallography series will be exhibited, whereas the youngest generation is represented by Līga Spunde’s (1990) installation made as a graduation work at the Art Academy of Latvia.
