“Daugava” ends year with transfer to new space

15.12.2014

The year is coming to an end, but “Daugava” Gallery is beginning anew, relocating to Ausekļa Street 1 in downtown Riga,  A well-known entity on the art scene, “Daugava” is proud to have sculptor Aigars Bikše as the very first artist in the new space. His one-man show is titled  „Inficēt taisnību” (“Infected with the Truth”)and it opens December 17.

Bikše himself explains that the exhibit is “like a training camp for people who observe themselves.” The works here have been created as “scenes with specific context, narrative and historical background – but they do not reflect reality.” Bikše uses his favorite materials – bronze, wood and wool.

Critics have noted his non-traditional form of expression, provocation and playfulness, liberal interpretation.”

The ideas behind the works came years ago, but they were wrought last spring.
